Snowflakes, A Haiku

Updated on December 15, 2011

Winter snowflakes

from the tropical south

wetly melt within my mouth.

      Seven great comments, but this is technically not a Haiku (other than that it has 17 syllables and three lines). Nonetheless, mislabeled or not, I am glad it elicits your responses and ten feedbacks!

      There we go again , and I was quite happy , that I also saw there are some great people here , to name a few Frank , Caroline. Etc.

      This is another nice Haiku , as I told Always Exploring yesterday I started researching different poems and the Haiku seems to be commanding the most attention.

      I like your style and you captured it with great simplicity.

      I 'll be reading.

      Thanks for you great and truthful comment on my comment to dear Caroline. I have come to realize that in these present times , the true essence of great living is all but a fading dream, and it's awfully sad , because the sppeed in which mankind is passing these virtues by, are the very same speed they will be later trying to find it "again" and that is sad.

      I call it a race to , nowhere.

      I will be writing quite a bit on these topics in the coming year because the need in me is now overwhelming , as I was the destruction of so many even very close ones.

      thanks you so much, and give thanks.

      Even snowflakes need a vacation from the cold.

      Nice Haiku. Living in the deep south, we so seldom get any snow at all, so I am drawn to snow imagery and poetry. :)
