Cold Night Haiku

I
a winter moon
is seen clearly between
breath fog plumes

 

II
starry skies,
through the tent flap,
herald cold’s bite

 

III
cold slinks in
once sleep has taken hold,
settling in bone

 

IV
winter midnight —
sunlight, a distant memory,
or so it feels

 

V
how bright the moon
in the mid-winter sky —
yet, no heat

5 Winter Night Haiku


 
snowy woods
glows in the moonlight
fox tracks



silent hour
smoke, a farm nearby?
who knocks?



barren woods
morning light will pass through
night’s void



who huddles?
a roadside silhouette
hitcher? boulder?



cloud & moon
paint different homesteads
from same scene
