Winter is over

Hello Poets,

Well, as least in our Haiku world.

It's almost midnight in the UK, so I am closing this blog.

You can start posting very soon on Spring Haiku 2009.

If you aren't a member, please go over there to sign in. We are always looking for new poets!

Thanks to Steve for organizing this site. We hope that you feel better now!

Signing off now!


comet lulin

the green comet
passed-by last night
behind clouds

winter – cling to life

deep breath of electric air

cross to Anelka…

sparrows sit
touching heads -
Spring inches in

rake … brown leaves … a ball

our last Fall day together

preserved under snow

Morning shivers on
the way to school. Coats pulled tight,
head bowed as in prayer.

wild water

wild water crashes over the edge of winter rock unyielding

mountainside forest

snow shaken from bough –

echo of axe

full of the sea's roar -
the crow's nest sways

below a pale sun
people squelch here
and there through slush

stars gleam
on a spun sky

Snowman moved
tired of this non-winter

knowing I've lived
through another winter-
quiet victory

returning road -
fresh snow
filled my steps


chemin de retour -
la neige fraîche
a comblé mes pas

during the fourth watch
cold air seeps through the windows
and brushes my ear

cold front

all night long she moans -
emptiness pregnant with sound
emptiness barren

in the night watches
frozen moon crosses window
drone of the clock

dark clouds roll away -
a crow drinks
from glittering tractor-tracks

through the window-
snow dances on the river
birds swooping down low

Under the surface
a rebel hidden
a vivid spring

during crazy day
outside the office window
fat cat just chillin'

bright line, connecting
me to your hospital bed
jet stream etch-a-sketch

the snow is too deep
for the pot-bellied pigs
but not too deep
for the children
standing on the swings

early shift-
stars fading into sun light
during the first break
