Snowflakes Haiku - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

The Ice Queen dances

weaving her magic spell of

white lacy dreamscapes



Awakening Spring Haiku


A soft white blanket

falling upon sleepy earth

beneath it Spring sighs


Winter Scene Haiku


Bright crystal flowers

captured by the fir branches

sunlight makes them glow
