swirling snow...
the crunch 
of cornflakes

    snowflakes, cornflakes...

    and snowflakes are so soft, cornflakes so... -- a nice contrast, Lary

    angelika, aptly put, "snowflakes so soft, cornflakes so crunchy"...and vice versal.
    though both soggy when wet.
    the contrasting and similarities continues:
    both in their whiteness, at some point both bearing the appearance of being dirt.
    ah yes;

    deep in wintry thought
    over bowl of cornflakes--
    are any two alike

    Laryalee,
    _I enjoyed your comparative contraries,
    snow -silently- fallen, -growling- underfoot.

    I read somewhere once that cornflakes were used to simulate snow for early television broadcasts...apparently the swirling effect couldn't be distinguished from the real thing on a studio set.

    congratulations Lary, on having your amusing haiku selected and shown here.

    corn flakes are yellow in Australia. which colour are they in Canada?

    Nice one, Lary. I love auditory haiku . . . and anything with food in it always helps!

    myron, your words remind me of another dissimilarity. cornflakes in the states are yellow(variant of); however from early childhood i was sternly warned to never eat the yellow snow...

    quarter moon lingers
    past the lamp post
    flakes swirl--
    or spiralling insects

    Mike, I think it was *soap* flakes that were used for snow in old-time movies. That and asbestos. But not, so far as I know, corn flakes!

    California winter--
    asbestos in the soil
    after eighty years

    Snowflakes...
    children licking one's lips-
    cornflakes

    Cornflakes save from the boredom of being locked at home because of the snowflakes.
    A good haiku Lary. Enjoyed.
