Haikus for Winter

Towering ice glows,

Shimmers, glitters; a palace

Frozen, yet vital

A warm breath of life

Vapor kisses lips, departs

Rises, frozen, new

Bright, so goddamn bright

I squint, make shape out of light

New dawn’s first hello

A crisp, frosty crunch

Step by step, away from warmth

Ever toward life

I’m no poet, but I stretched my comfort zone and wrote these for The Mountaineers winter haiku contest.
