Seasons Change--Haiku

Updated on February 16, 2013

Blustery wind blows;

Spring, Winter: battle to the death.

Bright sunshine; blue sky.

    Hi, Seeker7 and Fossillady!

    Thank you both for stopping by. I'm glad you both liked this tidbit. What is ironic is the shorter poems often take more work, thinking, tweaking and editing than the longer ones. ;-)

    Beautiful rhythm. And such a true sentiment for this time of year. Reminds me of the old religion (pagan)story about Winter Solstice when the Oak and Holly kings duel to see who would rule the next half of the year. Of course the Oak king wins so Spring and summer begin to rule and the light half of the year begins. Namaste.

    Hi there, Erin LeFey!

    Thank you very much. That is an interesting comparison you make. I am in the process of studying the pagan ways in history, and had not yet heard that story.

    Thanks for adding to my education.

    A haiku! I love haikus and am working currently on some myself! This was beautiful. Haikus have such a way of getting right to the point in such a creative way, using so few words. By the way, I love your new profile picture!

    Thanks much, erthfrend! I'm glad you enjoyed this bit. And thanks for the compliment on the photo! It was taken by my younger daughter...last October...at a corn maze with my grandkids. ;-)
