Winter Surprise

Daffodils in Snow

Spring hopes vanish

Morning snowflakes falling

Daffodils snow dance


Haiku Horizons Weekly Challenge Week#208 Prompt: Vanish

Our Pacific Northwest has been enjoying an unseasonably mild February this year causing flowers to bloom early and folks to feel as though Spring has come. However this morning Winter decided to let us all know that it was still hanging around by sending us a flurry of big heavy wet snowflakes. causing our lovely early bloomers to get covered in white. Thankfully the snow didn’t last long and the sun came out to melt it all away.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #25–Ballad of If’s

If I had the power dreams to fulfill,
Yours I would instill,
If I only could, I surely would.

If I knew the way to ease your pain,
Hurting, you would never feel again,
If I only could, I surely would.

Your sorrow I would banish,
Your dreams would never vanish,
If I only could, I surely would.

I’d bring you hope for the morrow,
and joy for your sorrow,
If I only could, I surely would.
