Four Winter Haiku

Posting winter haiku today for Poets United Poetry Pantry.  Thanksgiving is past and in our rearview mirror.  Winter is in front of us.  Thank you to the Poets at Poets United for all their kindness and support.  Some of my photos are posted there today.  Tomorrow, Sherry Blue Sky will post an interview with me and more photos on Poets United.  Come visit! http://poetryblogroll.blogspot.com/2015/11/poetry-pantry-280.html

I.
dead leaves carpet ground
beneath bare trees – end of
fall…winter begins

II.
Bitter cold morning –
Quick whiff of wood smoke before
Nostrils become numb.

III.
Spits of icy rain
bitter wind tossing tree tops
spring seems distant dream

IV.
brown hillside – splashes
of green cedars – small creatures
find food and shelter.
