Haiku challenge: Black & White

This week’s challenge from Ronovan is a suitably wintry one.


White winter wind calls

cracking ice in his black voice

cruel times to come.


Blackbird sings his song

white swan bends a graceful neck

the whole world enthralled.


White blizzard fury

black branches stripped of gold leaves

green buds wait for spring.

  1. Wow, I love this collection. They all fit your image perfectly – for there’s a swan down there somewhere in a section of unfrozen water. The December Christmas snow drifting across the screen adds an extra enchantment. Love it. 🙂
