Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

Snow floats cold and white
School's out this wintery day
Freedom shrieks outside.

Uncovered in play
A class of snowy angels
learns in my backyard.

Red noses and hands
cavort until they tingle
in the chilly white.

The house settles in
noise softened by snow's blanket
a cold sleepy day.

Tuck under a throw
coffee and breakfast in hand
quiet contentment.

As much as I hate snow - I must say that it sounds beautiful.

Lady, you know how to enjoy a snow day! Coziness emanates from your haiku series!

Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog. :)

You manage to make it sound so cozy and beautiful. Which is amazing since I am SO SICK of the snow.
Well done!

Quiet contentment? That's an oxy-moron at our house. BEAUTIFUL ku!

I left the Northeast because of the snow but I do miss that quiet hush everything gets while it is snowing.

And a snow day with the kids. Sounds wonderful.

Happy Friday!

That was lovely. I'm ready for spring, but a haiku like that helps me appreciate the beauty of winter.
