    Ah, waist-deep snowdrifts, that was long ago in England, but I remember them as a schoolkid.

    Alphabet soup: I made a haiku out of them on my Myspace site! ;-)

    A really nice snow haiku, brrrrrrr!

    Laryalee,
    _Your's... a warming thought_!
    _Adrift in a kef, I long for spring. If winter comes, can spring be far behind?

    snowdrift fills
    the cabin's shattered bones
    a broken teacup

    And spring spelled backwards is gnirps. If it were my soup, I'm afraid that's all I'd see. But you, lary, have the eye

    With apologies, Magyar

    if winter comes
    can spring be far behind—
    well, far enough

    but I wrote this last winter.

    Lary,

    I agree with Kala. I enjoyed seeing this one today. It's finally getting cold here.

    Bill, I remember reading that one on your blog. Enjoyed it again.

    _I hope you don't feel I've -taken- your words; I assure you, my response above... was written as it was thought.

    Lary,
    I like it; it's warm and nourishing...

    winter night
    the core of an apple
    full of seeds

    Hey Lary, that was great! Today is Lá le Bhríd here (Brigid's Day), traditionally the start of spring, and at last I can feel the evenings drawing out a little. Your haiku is warm and lovely!

    norman, it's been awhile. the best in the new year.

    brigid's day

    sheep milk time is come
    the branch snows
    from stem of seedful sap
    comes raiding shooting light...

    ...against the blight 
    winter left in worms 
    for eating things...
    the green woodpecker laughs
    'ha ha hello'

    p. fiacc


    -

    over my head
    lustful red bougainvillaeas--
    yet, spring seems always near
