Thought I would experiment with haiku this week … here are 4 to peruse…

Geese pepper the sky
Wings lingering through sunset
Hastening winter
 

My hands turn to bone
As the chill creeps inside them
Killing summer’s blood

 
Eyes become crystals
Snow slithers from pregnant clouds
Freezing unshed tears of loss

 
Pansies encrypted
In their pottery coffins
Wait for spring’s warm breath

Today’s guest poet  —  Helen Hunt Jackson

Tides

O patient shore, that canst not go to meet
Thy love, the restless sea, how comfortest
Thou all thy loneliness? Art thou at rest,
When, loosing his strong arms from round thy feet,
He turns away? Know’st thou, however sweet
That other shore may be, that to thy breast
He must return? And when in sterner test
He folds thee to a heart which does not beat,
Wraps thee in ice, and gives no smile, no kiss,
To break long wintry days, still dost thou miss
Naught from thy trust? Still, wait, unfaltering,
The higher, warmer waves which leap in spring?
O sweet, wise shore, to be so satisfied!
O heart, learn from the shore! Love has a tide!
