A Holiday Haiku

Today's snow flurries have inspired me to try my hand at Haiku:

Snowflake blankets sprawl
white and soft, marshmallow clouds,
peaceful lanscapes call.

And the winter beauty has sparked an idea to use Haiku to encapsulate a holiday, so here's my try at a Haiku dedicated to the new year:

Promise. Wonder. Hope.
Move onward with intention.
Listen. Love. Laugh. Pray.

What words would you use in your New Year's Haiku?


  1. Your poetry says it all Barbara.

  2. You just inspired my lesson plans! What a great back to school (again) activity! We can write haikus about the new year. Thanks Barbara!


I really enjoy hearing from my readers; thanks for sharing your reflections with us!
