National Poetry Month Day 6 – Haiku

Day 6 of National Poetry Month and I’m still going strong. Today’s poem is a Haiku. And there are two.

Winter

Deep in the winter
Ice clinging to once green leaves
Time freezes, shivers
Springtime 

First warm day of spring
Silk clouds coasting overhead
Wave to new young blooms

Haiku is both fun and challenging. It takes a bit of creativity to get the right syllables in each line (5-7-5) and to create an image that pops. Hope you enjoyed these two haikus. Thanks for reading.
