Friday Poetry: Snow haiku

IMG_0135

wet snow
just enough to show lines
erased by sun

-Andromeda Jazmon

We had a lovely snow the other night; softly falling all through the dark. Woke up to a couple inches of pure powder stuck to every twig and line. By the time I was driving to work the sun was brilliantly about her work melting everything into a world of drips and drops. On the way home I saw it was mostly gone, soaked into the earth.

Friday Poetry is hosted at Linda at TeacherDance. Enjoy!

Nice image. Don't you love the haiku form? I love how well it works to capture a single moment.

It seems that we had the same kind of storm Andi, just enough to make things look beautiful. The words & snow on the fence are beautiful.

Perfect! And I love the way you can actually see individual snowflakes on the edges of the snow.
