unbroken snow

    can't go for "terminus" in a haiku--just too heavy a word

    hmm, terminus: the end, goal, or limit; a point at either extremity of a travel line; l.__terms

    what was it i aspired ...
    snow covered dreams
    ashes not seen

    end of the line --
    off in the distant
    her wind swept red hair

    terminus a quo--
    this winter night
    the darkness blends

    at dawn,
    on the snow from the last night
    footprints of sparrows
