Stillness in the snow,
pearl arraignment eastern sky…
paint brush from above.
Stillness in woodland,
snowbirds climb tiered tree branches,
wind whispers winter’s thaw.
Stillness in dawn sky,
dollops of snow on tall pines;
winter covers earth.
A haiku winter poem for earthweal open link weekend #53
P.L. Wolf, poet & author of Jemi’s Noble Quest
“She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.”Psalm 31:21
“But no matter how low the mercury dips, or how deep the snow cover, you’ll find winter birds of Wisconsin going about their business. Small flocks of black-capped chickadees search for food, foraging for seed and suet. They often join nuthatches, cardinals, downy woodpeckers, and others at backyard feeders.”birdwatchersdigest.com
“Wisconsin average snowfall ranges from about 40 inches in the south to as much as 160 inches along the shores of Lake Superior. On average, about 35 to 40 winterweather events hit Wisconsin each winter.”Wisconsindot.gov
