WINTER HAIKU

windchimes
in winter
distant stars
*
first snow
trees holding
silence
*
deep winter
the wind swinging
on the playground swings

 

RIVER IN SNOW

Water
flowing through
water:

the fast-moving dark

and on either side,
stillness in white.

Water flowing
through water.

Rapids talking
back to themselves,
bracketed by silence.

Oh to be held so close
by something that fell
and stayed.

Water flowing through water

quick cursive
across the blank page

the river writing stories
of arrival, the sunlit snow
letting go
a book of sky

both yielding
to a larger knowing,
in time disappearing
into what they are.

Water flowing through
water.

One with the voice of continuing,
and the other, lingering.

Oh to be the one who was
whispered to slowly
even as I was leaving

 

Jennifer Burd, Ypsilanti, Michigan
