Morning Haiku and Waka – Winter – November 26, 2014

sylphs play in the snow
under the naked willow
making mighty drifts

wind in the snowflakes
swirling ’round the yard like sylphs
–  dancing wonderland

sitting by the window
snowflakes tumble in the wind –
whispering cold


the new season dawns
cold wind whistles winter songs
curled in a duvet
nostalgic music playing
and I think – let it snow

(c) G.s.k. ’14

  1. Oh no! Not ready for snow! But — school’s canceled for the kiddo — first big snow storm due tomorrow and it was a half day of school anyway due to Thanksgiving vacation.

    I love that the sylphs are still running amok — at least they’re making the place lovely! Making lovely poems, too. 😀


  2. A beautiful set. I have never experienced a snowfall, and thus, it is one of my wishes to experience the snowflake “sylphs” dance.
    I particularly liked the last line of the tanka: “..let it snow”.There is a simple elegance to it.
    Thank you so much for hosting the prompt in my absence.


    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts here .. snow can be marvelous .. especially to look at … sorry I jumped the gun last week …It was in the afternoon and I thought it was the haiku day so when I asked Yves if I was to post something for that week’s prompt she said yes … but she didn’t realize that I was talking about that day!
