Dark Winter Haiku sequence


Dark winter tide turns

dark wind blows howling snow clouds

dark days are coming.


The fire within dies

quenched when the wind blows too hard

love’s flickering flame.


Your words breathe a chill

coat this beating heart with frost

while snowflakes fall soft.


Wind blows upriver

gulls drift on their wings lost souls

mist falls hides your face.


Into winter dark

crow flaps through thick falling snow

call lost in the wind.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Thank you! WordPress turns on the snowstorm on the first of December. The first winter after I started blogging, WordPress asked did I want a snowflake effect. I’d seen it on a friend’s blog so daid yes. They turn it on automatically every year. If you ask WordPress they’ll certainly let you have it too 🙂

      1. Yes, plugins are confusing! And I think some don’t work on wordpress.com but on wordpress.org, at least that’s what I’ve read. Who knows 🙂
        I found the “snowfall” under settings–general. Loving it ❤
