Snowflakes Haiku Poem

One flake seeking more

Silently changing our world

Covering it white



Winter Wonderland

Snowflakes

A lowly flake

Twirling, floating down

Searching for another

So small yet -

Magnificent in it’s beauty

It finally comes to rest

In peaceful silence

It’s lightness and touch unnoticed

The search is over

One by one

The snowflakes fall

Together they magically touch

And weave their blanket white




The Frozen Pond

Ice & Snow Make a Beautiful Winter Wonderland

Wonderous sights

Icicles glistening

Neatly in a row

Trees are transformed

Enveloped in white

Resting quietly


Whirling in the breeze

Over fields and hills

Never making a sound

Deep in the valleys

Every bush and plant

Richly dressed in snow

Lovely in it’s beauty

All around us

Neatly folded drifts

Dazzling brilliant white



A Magical Winter Wonderland

Beautiful poems and pictures. Looks like what I see every day living here in Maine. I have a love/hate relationship with snow. Growing up in california I could count on one hand how many times I encountered snow in my childhood, and so now I still get excited when I see the first snow fall. Its so beautiful and just covers everything, turning even the ugliest buildings and streets into, like you said, winter wonderlands. I get tired of it after awhile, having to drive in it and work in it and shovel it LOL, but having my son now is bringing out a new joy when facing snow. He is so amazed by it, I in turn cannot help but also be amazed.

Hi bizarrett81, thank you for reading and your lovely comments.

It's not very often we experience snow here in England, so when we do I get quite excited!!

Snow is so much fun with children around, they are having a great time here sledging and building snowmen - enjoy it with your son!

Best wishes Lesley

Oh yes, children make is sooo much more fun! In fact, took my son sledding yesterday and he was wild with happiness (He's 16 months). Its such a reminder to enjoy everything.

And enjoy the snow! I saw your rare weather on the news yesterday = )

Hello Lesley- what a scence you bring to us; through both camera and pen you delight. Here in the far off desert know as California we do see this. Your poetry is beautiful and accompanied the photography well.

I love the photos and the poems, Lesley. My favorite poem is the haiku - those three lines create such a beautiful image. We haven't had much snow where I live so far this winter. Part of me is glad, because I hate driving in snow, but the other part of me is sad because I want to take photos of the snowy landscape!
