a softness covers the ground
not making a sound
Snow fell on our little city this weekend. I do love watching it gently fall and how is makes everything look so fresh and pretty. Unfortunately, it doesn't stay this way. But until it turns to slush and ice, I'll enjoy the newness of it's beauty.
As I watched it fall all day (in between doing laundry, the dishes, straightening the house, etc.), adjectives for snow kept running through my mind...weird, I know!
Guess I was also thinking of school and the fact that we have one week left until Christmas break! Woo-hoo!
So, I jotted down a few of those words and put them into phrases and then composed a haiku or two! :)

Here is a little info and some guidelines on the haiku if you "choose to haiku"~ ( I should probably have some more coffee before I try to write a joke!)
The haiku is a poem or verse that originated in Japan. It is written in three lines. The haiku does not rhyme. Instead, the haiku sets a mood or portrays a feeling or scenery.
The entire haiku is composed in 17 syllables. The first line contains five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third and final line has five syllables. 5-7-5.
First, choose a topic or theme (mine was snow), then think of words that describe your theme:
1st line: 5 syllables
2nd line: 7 syllables
3rd line: 5 syllables
