Winter Haiku - Poem by Michael Regan

Winter haiku

Frost glitters on the road;
An arc of hills ablaze with lights;
How long these icy winter nights.

Like a sudden oasis
In the grey, cold street,
The greengrocer’s stall.

A filigree of green and gold
The twigs and branches of this bare tree
Lit by the winter sun.

Pale January sunshine
Brings relief
To the shivering palms.

In a distant desert the din of war
But here the cheerful woodpecker
Drums Spring’s arrival.
