Winter's patch of green.


noon sun
burns this snowy path
green moss

Thank you for visiting my site. I am drinking in all of your favorite links.

you write about the light in your haiku, which always changes, and adds or subtracts color and form.

good work!

Ha! two pair of gloves, two colors each! clever one!

I may not be able to feel this right now 'cause it's minus 30 something, but I certainly can dream...beautiful

ABQ Annie said...

Yes the constant cycle of it snowing and melting in the winter.

Magyar said...

__Oooo... I thank you all for your visits and kind comments!
__Dianne, welcome! Yes, the links to the right are an invaluable list of poets, please visit and enjoy them all.
__SSV, Thank you! In this winter snow, the bit of green is a hint of summer... that that was, and the summer that will be. The crux of haiku is its prompt to each reader's questions and imagination, and by asking your imagination to answer your questions... therin may be the key. _m

hint of spring - green moss?, although i welcome it, i think i'll linger with winter for a while..., love the contrast in your haiku

Talon said...

Oh, I wish we'd have a little of that noon sun so I could see some green. Beautiful haiku!

Sounds quite warm!

it's a saying in Finland:

- How it's going on?
- Like burning some ices ...

word verification was gropic (with g)

- and a happy New Year for you!

RBroeker said...

O and S dominate this haiku - so I can hear the melting. For I am late a bit in here it is a great beginning of the new year at this poetic place.

Best wishes

I thought a Haiku was five syllables, seven syllables and five syllable? Your seem to be three, five three?

Magyar said...

Gia,
__Thank you for your visit and question:

__My view... only.
__Minimalism seems to have taken control, and writers, far beyond my skill, are writing to that minimalist scale.
__It seems, in the "English" language haiku, the new, is... L1, under 5 syllables; L2, under 7 syllables; L3, under 5, and that old saying >less is more< has come to prove itself. Of course, the links at the right.
__No one, though, has fully "cast aside" the 5-7-5 format. (a pattern set-up by whom?)
tnx _m
