As Spring stays amiss, snow lingers. The snow, which was voluminous, is slowly declining, ebbing fears of flooding! That's good news!
Also good is that andhaiku.com has slipped over 15,000 views this week. Thank you all for your support.

shadows hold the ice,
the same ice that holds the snow,
Spring slowly awakes

The grip of winter seems to be loosening a bit, as if we were trying to run around when we needed to stay close by. The recent chills were the same as a parent's look when we each have drifted off and caused concern. I'm not sure we needed such severity, but we were pulled back firmly. Yet we, again, were and still are restless and yearn to move and go about on our own ways.

The hand was so heavy; it just drips away.

Winter's parental
grip is loosening, relaxed.

The corners of each foot step—prints left in the quick eternity of each snowfall—bear witness to what is. Most times, what steps are left, whether walking towards or leaving from February, are rounded and soft, with almost a pocketed, hollow snow. Right now, the snow sits condensed and jagged, each detail made hard by the bitterness of an icy snow. And still, Spring is underway, it's unfolding as this cold holds its last stand.

what should be rounded
snow from warmth, still hardened ice,
crunching sharp edges

It's the concepts of winter and summer that are harder to accept. We would like to think of this cold as this constant, unending state, but spring is underway. The sun is now bending longer in the sky. The warmth from the sun is ebbing towards warm. We are either in spring or falling away. Now is the time of hope, so we revisit this concept again, two weeks later!

as if the gentle
snow suddenly became dogs,
winter bites deep down

The concepts of winter and summer are a bit misleading. Yes it is cold today, but since the end of December, we have been ebbing towards Spring. This haiku has seen 45 minutes longer of sun than one around Christmas. Still cold, but the underpinnings of Spring are underway!

prolonging dusk sky,
Spring's in the sky as Winter
brings its heavy hand

The cold has dropped like a hammer, striking to the bone; again, and again, and again. When we have been forged, maybe this hammering will stop?


once luscious green fields,
now the iron winter pounds
with forging hammers

It's reasonable to think that the amount of snow we've gotten this year means Spring will never come; yet, we feel the warmer sun as we encounter it. Though it's been warming for a while (Spring has been underway while we were under all that snow), it still feels new. Enjoy!

under grey-white trees,
snow dripping off in warm sun,
Spring is emerging!

Spring is underway but it's hard to understand; this natural arching towards the warmth of full life is still unavailable when we go outside. Everyplace seems to be ice and eye level snowbanks—the temperatures dropping as we go deeper into the year—but early in the morning a bird song can be heard. As the heaviness of the ice still tries to pull and contract everything unto itself, the bird song still is our prophet and we it's deciding judged.

Each day the deep chill holds, the hand of spring show itself more and more:a bird here or there, a brighter sky for longer days, and how much warmer the inside of a car is when the sun is out.
The concept of winter hides the idea that we are in the arrival of spring, now just waiting for the symptoms to catch up, waiting for the bitter cold to leave us.

under the grayish cold clouds,
spring hides in the snow

Hands clutch the mug with still hot coco, each person pauses as they enter a warm place just to recognize it is warm; We do this because it is dangerously cold. We do this to stay warm. We do it to stay safe. We do do this because we are humans.

the hands of this cold
turns everything like a top;
Winter's breaking hard

This cold spell, almost the mirror of last winter: every day the suffering baptism into an endless winter. Despite the warm fires, the door and windows are the cooling stations. Yet we still leave?


crunching steps of ice,
temperatures suggesting eternal,
winter's now brittle

If snowflakes were sounds instead of sites, what would they be? They would have to be well tuned and a wide variety so they could be a beautiful sound. Image the beauty of freshly fallen sound being the soundtrack we heard when it snowed?

soft snow piling,
whimsical flakes, whimsical,
winter's melodies

Fantastic, rich, authentic experience! A muddy Sunday morning I accidentally walked in in search of coffee. I sat at an charming old table -- whispering of many owners through the century-- and had to have an old fashion doughnut: delightful! Quality and charm is in every inch of this wonderful treasure!
