from the Icebox inbox – 34

gleaming coals burn to ash –
the day begins
as a new slate

Brinda Buljore, France

early morning
uneven feet zig-zag
along the icefield

Payal Aggarwal, India

grey clouds
cover the tiny village …
trickling snowflakes

Keith A Simmonds, France

long-tailed tits
gathering in the hawthorn
first flurries of snow

John Hawkhead, U.K.

true “sky blue”
beyond bare branches …
the scrape, scrape, scrape
of a shovel
clearing away snow

Jane Wieman, Wisconsin

lingering cold –
through the shōji
the cry of a crow

Lawrence Jiko Barrow, Japan

    Hello Tito. Thanks for selecting my haiku for Icebox inbox -34 ( Feb 2015). As to where I have been , well my even feet were zig-zagging around Europe but now I’m home so will be contributing often.

  2. Some great ku here! I think my favourite must be Lawrence’s for its delicately attenuated wabi.

    Is Jane-san disgusted with the snow? Or, glad of? Sounds of the shovel go quite well with the fine sky blue. Nice juxtaposition!
