First Snow Haiku

By Ann Minnett

Barbara Schiffman recently hosted a webinar about Haiku poetry. The term has expanded to include a variety of interpretations, but she and the attendees favored the more traditional 5-7-5 syllable version of Haiku. I made a brief attempt to keep a Haiku diary and vow today to resume the practice.

Our first substantial snowfall inspired me to write this.

First Snowfall

Pristine silence thuds

Pinpricks speckle lifted smiles

No work only peace.

Winter has arrived in NW Montana. Have a lovely week no matter where you call home.
