It looks like winter
the air lingers with snowflakes
soon we will make the snowman

Constellations On Her Skin

Cold smile, cold lungs
Black ice lives in his dark eyes
Arctic winds biting

The sky, dark and black
Littered with snowflakes that look
Like constellations

Eyes the color of
Cheap champagne and blue crystals
Lips stained to azure

Fingertips raw and
Frostbitten, spreading slowly
Shivering, dying

SUN DOGS

Even the sun is cold
She is frozen in the sky
Her warm dogs cuddle

The above Haiku was inspired by a walk I had with a friend who was from Florida.  I was on a clear below zero day.  I pointed out to her, that it’s so cold the Sun is snuggling with her sun dogs.  She was beyond surprised at the phenomena that we all are too familiar with in Minnesota.  After having my fun, I explained the science to her.

Aurora

Tilt away, Earth--hide;
hang lights in your skies, while poles
encase suns in ice.

White powder roars by
The window blushed with warm breath
The chill of death lurks...

Warmth


Christmas Day snowstorm.
with Daughter and our six cats;
I am home at last .

Red Chill

The oozing blood drips  
Freezes my over-taut lips  
tastes like white ghost bites

Winterfresh (Haiku)

Teeth clicks in the chill
shivers beneath cloudless sky
a candy cane kiss.

Deep Freeze

Who ordered this freeze ??
My truck protests, frigid air;
cold needs to stop, now.
