Wintry Haiku Trio

Nervous newcomer
slips and falls onto deep snow.
Makes bad impression.


Valiant croci
strain to push through snow’s surface.
All retreat but one.


My tossed-aside snow
returns to the cleared sidewalk.
An icy revenge.

(The first haiku is for the Haiku Heights impression prompt and the second one is for I Saw Sunday.)

  1. “Makes bad impression.” Oh, a double entendre (or something similar thereto) for sure!

    I liked these very much, especially the second one. The crocus in our garden are bloomimg and I can just imagine what snowfall would do to them!

    Thanks very much for leaving your link at I Saw Sunday. I hope to see you there again next week. :-)
