Haiku #30

living creatures fear
winter's brutal onslaught
earth reduced to silence

(C) Carol Wilcox, 2015


living creatures hide
as winter's brutal onslaught
reduces earth to silence
(C) Carol Wilcox, 2015

This morning, I read Steve and Kevin's poems on Twitter. It occurred to me that I really have not seen many nearly as many living creatures- birds, squirrels, or people- this week. We haven't had much snow, but it's been super cold, with the high being around 20 most days. That's where this poem came from.
