Febuary Snow



Crispness beneath feet
Visible warm breath vapor
Animals retreat

Thanks for stopping by GDP. Love the haiku. The world would be a better place if everyone read and wrote at least one a day.

You are welcome, it was my pleasure! I like the way you think...yes, if everyone read and/or wrote a poem, prose, a book or even a letter, how different the world would be.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my work and leave a nice comment.

So, this is a haiku. I like the feel of it. The photo adds to its charm.

Thank you, Dave....yes, this is a Haiku, an easy enough form to write but makes you give hard consideration to your word choices....because you only have 17 syllables to work with.

Haiku: 3 lines of 5 7 5 syllables
doesn't have to rhyme and it is written about nature.

Senryu is like a Haiku only doesn't have to be about nature.
