Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Forecasting the Weather

on February 20, 2018

Sunny and warmer
Patio transitioning
Holiday lights gone

No bulbs blink nightly
No snowman, sleigh or reindeer
Live in the ivy

March will soon arrive
With its annual snow storm
On St. Paddy’s Day

Not out of the woods
Winter weather still lingers
Aye, but we can dream

    Ah, I’m longing too for winter’s cold hands to leave soon… Your poem evokes beautiful imagery though!

    Thanks, Christy. At least for now it is above freezing. Stay warm. ā¤

    You probably did a far better job in forecasting the weather than many weather stations – and in haiku format too šŸ™‚

  5. Resa says:

    Yes, we can dream! The best part is the dream will come true!

    This beauty really says spring is close. It reminded me of during the growing up years, my father was very keen on getting the peas in the ground before Saint Patrick’s Day, in hopes of an ‘onion’ snow to bless their planting. Thank you.
