“Okay … today our prompt is snow viewing and it’s based on Jane Reichhold’s “A Dictionary of Haiku”, so its a modern kigo (for winter). There are several examples by Jane, but I love to share first a few haiku by our classical haiku masters.

iza saraba  yukimi ni korobu  tokoro made

well then,
let’s go snow-viewing
till we all fall down

uma sôna yuki ya fûwari fûwari to

looking delicious
the snow falling softly
softly

yuki-guni no yuki iwau hi ya asagi-zora

a day to celebrate
snow country’s snow!
a pale blue sky

fresh fallen snow
the backyard looks like a fairytale –
on bare foot

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I see myself lying in a warm bed while some poor schlub is outside freezing his touchkas, listening to the repetitive scraping of the snow shovel on the pavement. glad it’s him and not me.
