Winter Circles

tail tipped with hoar frost
ring of russet fox breath hangs
sparkling in dawn light

sprigs of mistletoe
cosy kisses and cuddles
a roaring fireplace

seasonal poems
first snow against window panes
whisper of sleigh bells

Christmas tree baubles
a pile of brightly wrapped gifts
a child’s glowing smile

Kim M. Russell, 2017


My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #11 Full Circle – Wintertime

In a new Carpe Diem weekend-meditation, our challenge is a ‘full circle’ with the theme of ‘wintertime’, in which the goal is to write (only) haiku with twelve given words in a clock-wise direction, resulting in four haiku. The words are:

  1. hoar frost
  2. breath
  3. morning light
  4. mistletoe
  5. cuddle
  6. fireplace
  7. poem
  8. first snow
  9. whisper
  10. christmastree
  11. gifts
  12. smile

    Child’s Breath

    Breath of mistletoe
    whisper poem,
    gifts of a smile
    cuddle by the fireplace..

    Morning light
    dancing bright,
    in first snow,
    smile of delight
    amazing children
    christmas night…

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
