Carpe Diem Haiku Pilgrimage: Winter Emptiness

icy beads pelt down
as slippery paths glisten
…winter emptiness

winter banquet, haiku, writing challenge, carpe diem haiku, japanese poetry, winter

 Inspiration: Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem Haiku Kai – Meiseki-ji (temple 43) and here, in my hometown, another healthy winter mix of sleet and snow for the next couple of days.

Cheers!

      the emptiness part at the end related to the theme for the challenge but i really think your version, winter jewel, sounds much better, Milu. 🙂

      just a few more weeks left in March, so we should be seeing spring on the horizon soon, Marilyn. it will be nice to have the warmer temperatures before summer begins. 🙂

    We were quite lucky that we got less winter mix than originally predicted.
    The sun is even trying to come out to melt what is there…

    I enjoy kaeru. I think having my little friend, she helps me continue my haiku as one continuous story. Thank you for your visit to my ‘B’ post 🙂

      you’re right, Amrit. cold is good…it keeps the insect population at bay but too much can be a downer for sure. thanks for the warm comment.

      thank you, Linda…yes, i think spring is just around the corner. we go through days like a yo-yo – warm one day and next a gigantic drop in temperatures. i think nature is giving a few hints. 🙂
