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…
I love them too much to think
They’ll melt by noon**
even before dawn,
snowflakes drift first over path
…make way for 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.
