Snow Flowers

Written for:  On The Trail With Basho … Encore #15 flower-like snowflakes
This week I have a nice haiku by Basho to inspire you which he wrote in winter 1687.

polished again
the mirror is as clear as
flower-like snowflakes

Steady fall of white
mountains in sculptured shapes
bouquet of snowflakes

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
