Attack Of The Snowflakes Haiku - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

There is nothing like

being pelted by Heaven's

dizzy frozen tears


I wish Heaven would

quit crying so that Spring would

finally get here


White spirals downpour

Winter's avenging ninjas

disappear from sight


Wrong season snowfall

shouldn't happen at this time

Nature's ten foot mess


How can such tiny

feather light flakes reach such high

accumulation?


Was Heaven angry

when our planet rocked and rolled

wrapped like a snowball


Glacial planet

shaking to the music of

the sphere's legacy


What a cold promise

when the weather teases me

longing a Spring sign


I've come to realise

Winter, the mini-ice age

is Earth's sleepy time


I'm stuck shoveling

a ton of snowy cold ice

caused by climate change


I could really use

that global warming just send

it posthaste my way.

    Hi Lorraine - Nice to meet a California Girl also nice to find a fellow Hiakuist! I am posting one about the months of the years. I like Haikus in bundles - one can write a real story. Well done 10. (Report)Reply

    This is indeed lovely work, but nothing surpasses your first stanza. It is a poem all to itself. I would let it stand like a mysterious crystal tear all alone. Raynette (Report)Reply
