Winter Roads Haiku

a.

Stand in falling snow

wet heavy flakes that will stick

while drinking beer

 

Navigate ice paths

watershed of tire ruts

solid groove in ice

 

Over rocky slope

where many cars slide and bump

there is no silence

 

There is no life here

a slippery awkward land

nearby steam and smoke

 

No flutter of warmth

mountain groove like miner’s hand

sip some beer again

 

Polished shiny bulbs

putting chains on in flurry

all before dawn

 

Polished hubcaps gleam

mad dance spinning and laughing

gaining some traction

 

Engine flutters warm

ashes ashes we fall down

on Kingsbury Grade

b.

Old log roads nearby

there is only this frozen

“thirty miles of dust”

 

Finding frozen pond

nowhere in snow to take nap

leave our minds to wind

 

Hard callous winter

on the frozen sky and stone

our weather worn love

 

Intoxicating

design found within the frost

winter seduction

 

Tree roots remain still

underneath the hard blue soil

everything frozen

 

No coyote seen

squirrel is in hibernation

only people move

 

Slowly on the ice

more of a careful shuffle

more push than a pull

 

This frozen liquid

can breed a fast reaction

then stand back grinning

c.

From tree ice tooth glow

eyebrows solid with fresh snow

dance on the frozen

 

On this cold hard floor

beautiful walls made of white

no birds to be seen

 

Abundant love here

under the layers of Frost

near sting in fingers

 

Frost on the fence tops

reflects on the neighborhood

my snowy neighbor

 

Six in the morning

near excavation gravel

snow drifts to the sky

 

Scene a turquoise blue

light ice crystals on a breeze

float free around trees

 

Snow up on the hills

mostly ice in the valley

silent as feather

 

Water turns to ice

upon wrinkled granite slab

intricate crystal

d.

Mountain crumbling

as white as this winter breath

snowfields are melting

 

While drinking a beer

tiny ledges of frozen

flower underfoot

 

Solid groove in ice

this blue pandemonium

this slippery path

 

cracks on the highway

where many cars slide and bump

nearby steam and smoke

 

A repetition

find stability in glide

keep oneself standing

 

Polished hub caps gleam

with a rising shadow sun

gaining some traction

 

Engine flutters warm

putting chains on in a flurry

more push than a pull

 

Hard callous winter

underneath the hard blue soil

intoxicating

    Like the imagery, Jamie. I love the snow and ice but hate driving on it. We don’t have much here but it’s great when freshly fallen under a sunny sky.
    Happy New Year!
