Irene's Haiku - Winter

horizontal rule

One plus one at first
Love and sharing makes us one
Who have we become?


Mid years bring freedom
From youth's follies, parents cares
Ah! Old age is nigh.

Where would you go
After scaling the mountain?
What would you do?


My shadow!
Eighty eight years walking on you
We have become good friends.

In quiet moments
I hear the song of my life
But not the last verse.


Monoliths looming
Mysterious in moonlight
Only the day sleeps

half dome mountain and trees
pine tree branch

Little nuggets of life
Beg not to be thrown away
Remember - treasure


What's written in stone
Crumbles with time's passing - but
Gaia remembers

In the ocean's wake
There are eons of memories
On rocky tidal flats.


Where would you go
After hiking on the mountain
What would you do?

One plus one at first
Love and sharing makes us one
Who have we become?


Mid years bring freedom
From youth's follies, parent's care
Ah, old age is nigh.

First snowfall last night
How could I stay indoors on
Such a special day!


Time flies on wings
But then so do I
Birthday is looming.

swallow

My cold fingers
Inside warm mittens
Winter wants to linger.


Still desert mountains
Not abandoned by time
Their clock runs slowly

How brief is a life !
Soft footprints on the path of
The redwood forest.


Beautiful new fallen snow
Fun for children's play
soon dirty and melting away.
