I’m on a mission to continue enjoying winter until spring comes.
Tuesday morning as I stood at the gas station, filling up my car while the snow fell, I composed a haiku in my head. Of course, by the time I got to a place where I could write it down, I’d forgotten it. But I came up with another one. Two, in fact.
Snowflakes tumbling down
Resting on her eyelashes
A frozen beauty

Hushed yellow buses
Covered in thick white blankets
There’s no school today
Okay, all you writers out there! Sharpen your haiku skills (remember, the syllables are 5/7/5) and share some haiku. I’ll come up with prizes for the ones I like the best. (It will be interesting to see what I come up with because with all this snow, I probably won’t get out to the store, so I’ll have to scrounge around the house.)
Requirements: It must fit haiku pattern and it must be about winter. Extra points for happy winter themes (I don’t need depressing poetry this time of year!) and super-extra points for lovely imagery. This is great for you homeschooling moms to assign to your kids! Limit three haikus per person, please.
Deadline: Please enter by midnight on Friday night, February 12. I will try to get winners chosen and announced on Monday the 15th.
