Winters Sun

while winter weeks warmth 
wondrous weeping willows wilt 
wrens whistle wildly 

spring season soon starts 
sunflower seeds sprout slowly 
sparrows sing softly

Broken Branch

Broken Branch

Winter-gray tree branch
       Hangs low, stricken by the storm
               Broken... but alive.

Snow is just a mask 
Regenerating earths face.

- Haiku X 21 - Missed You -


                                  My bed is lonely
                                  the glow of your naked body
                                  The winter breathes on me

Autumn Shawl

Fluttering golden 
brown leaves dancing on air falls 
undressing nature

The wild geese flying 
overhead a sign of peace
winter closes in

Throwing the old peat
keeping a fire burning 
as cold approaches

Poem Details | by Sara Kendrick
Categories: beauty, seasons,


an orange full moon rising on a cloudy night... winter winds stir chimes
