Haiku Elementals

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , , on March 19, 2010 by echostains

I wrote these last week.  I saw the word ‘snow’ and decided to go …..woah (wrong poem!)  I saw the word snow and thought I’d do a Haiku about it.  You would think I’d had enough of snow, having moaned on about it when it was here wouldn’t you?  Anyway,  the words  to the James Taylor song ‘Fire and Rain’

‘I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen sunny days I thought would never end…..’

went around in my mind and I thought I would try to a Haiku about all four weather elements so:-


Descend soft snowflake

And sleep the sleep of angels

Melting in the night


Welcome bright stranger

A fleeing shadow hovers –

Stands in dumb salute


The gust that chatters

Whispers “come and join our dance”

We have a short time


Relentless droplets

Dancing in a rainbow hue

Becoming oceans

Even better hear it and weep  (in a good way)
