Haiku: Snow Flurries

snow flurries
each flake even softer

  1. Beautiful photos of the snow. Here we have had less light flakes as we have been having a snow storm /blizzard most of the day. But tomorrow when it finally stops everything will look beautiful. Have a happy and peaceful end of the week Xenia.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Anne, I can imagine how beautiful it will look when the snow storm stops where you are πŸ’™β˜ƒοΈ It has been the same for our friends who live a bit further inland and here on the coast the snow showers are a lot lighter. A happy and peaceful end of the week to you too πŸ€—πŸ§‘πŸ΄ xxx

  2. This haiku has such a light, thoughtful feel to it (“each flake even softer / than it might be”). And the snow! The flakes almost appear as a star field, lending a celestial atmosphere to the images. How does Misty like snow? Most dogs I’ve known seem to love it and feel invigorated by it. She seems to have a serious expression on her face! πŸ™‚ Finally, that last photograph…the snow and the grass, the distant, obscured hills and the low sky…it has a timeless feel to it. Enchanting. Thanks, Xenia, as always. πŸ™‚
