Haiku for winter

The Snapdragon Inn



Part of Mondays with Max is exploring all things literary. With Christmas quickly approaching, and winter beginning to really settle into Vermont, I thought this week it would be fun to try something different. I'd like to send out a winter Haiku challenge to all our readers-- put your thinking caps on and lay down some verse for us!

In case you need a refresher, Haiku is a three line poem centered around nature themes. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line 7 syllables, the final line has 5. They generally have two parts.

One of the young "Whipper-Snappers" of the family was kind enough to write up a sample to get us started. Just leave your mini masterpiece in the comments section and let's see how many winter or snow themed haikus we can create.

Snow is falling down.
Winter is all around us.
I love wintertime!
-A. Whipper-Snapper, age 11

Ice everywhere shines
Encasing branches and leaves
Earth’s own chandelier
-Joy, age unimportant

Happy Holidays to everyone! We hope you have a blessed and enjoyable Christmas! Now show me your mad poetry skills!
