Falling Snow

#Haiku Happenings #1 (3/13/18): revivedwriter’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!

It’s time for another haikai challenge again, and Frank has us writing about snow this week! Living in a place where it never snows, I draw a lot on my memories of Christmases at my grandparents’ house when writing about snow. I have 2 tanka poems on the topic so far. They are similar, but I was not sure which one I liked better


Snow falling softly
On barren ground, whispering
Lullabies of peace:
Singing, you may sleep sweetly,
I am your blanket in grief.

Snow falling softly
On barren ground, blanketing,
Cold yet comforting:
Whispering, “I will hold you
‘Til springtime brightens your eyes.
