Spring snow haiku

schneegloeckchen_im_schnee

Snow feathers dancing

where brown birds trail their first songs,

spring waits in bare buds.

 

Six-pointed crystals,

clotted cloud speckling the sky,

trailing from the stars.

 

Such bright little things,

the green shoots that pierce the snow—

I hear white bells ring.

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.
