Inevitable – Morning Haiku and Waka – November 24, 2015

Early Snow_sharpened

in this silence
walking through a snow bound field
a frozen red rose

the long cold nights of winter
yield to spring

the last leaf
rains down from the ash tree
bleak is the sleeping forest
but for the eternal pines

barren branches dressed
in sparkling white winter robes
ash trees and palms

endless cycles
inevitable – changes
each sunrise is a new day
each sunset a passing

sprinkled with the colors of autumn
