Winter’s Masks #RonovanWrites #Haiku Challenge 394

sight for sore eyes

vast winter landscape
the blinding glare of the sun
snow goggles or masks

snowflakes on water

snowfall on water
snow on open water

windswept sunlight
ripples sparkle on the water
shadows dance below

when the lake’s surface stills
each falling snowflake chimes

This is the first day in October, and judging by the temperature drop, I am expecting snow to appear soon in our weather forecasts. As it stands, frost late tonight and tomorrow morning, and watch out for winds and wind chill information.

Concept source: “The Sound of Snowflakes”, by Philip Ball. See “Lake in Winter” for a previous poem that centers on this information.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #270 Pure&Serene

autumn’s evening shades
serenity of raindrops
clarity of light

promises of winter nights
muted breath of pristine snow
