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.

Snowflakes and Kisses! Happy 2014!

Because my internet connection is having a rough day, not loading anything complete and/or taking so long just to load a page, let me put aside my original last day of December post and leave this wonderful thought here before I go and hibernate in a warm spot with a good book and a glass of wine…
