First Snowflakes…

Since the New Year, I have neglected my practice of haiku writing.  Shameful of me so here is a Carpe Diem Special featuring the haiku of  **Alexey Andreyev. The challenge, to “write a new haiku inspired on the one given [below], but it has to be in the same tone, sense and spirit.”

Here we go…

first snowflakes!
I love them too much to think
They’ll melt by noon**

even before dawn,
snowflakes drift first over path
…make way for footprints!

first snow, haiku, Alexey Andreyev, Carpe Diem Special, footprints

For those in their winter months, I hope you enjoy some time walking in the snow, hearing the crunches with each footstep. Most of the first snow here is long gone. Maybe more snow later but I hope spring is near and anxious to give warmer weather.

Thank you and peace be with you.

    As much as I’m not a big fan of snow, there’s something magical about those first footprints in fresh snow

      i agree with you, Bryan…the magical moment quickly fades when nature decides to let the snow rip on for days. thanks for brushing in a kind note.

    You’re lucky in there to have snowflakes, as I dont’. I’m lucky here to have the wild white cockatoos crossing the street, but you don’t. Would you like to swap? Once a while doesn’t hurt.
