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 ❤
