  1. Beautiful winter scene. One can hear the quiet…

  2. The combination of words and photos are simply exquisite, Geraldine…winter, tho,’ is my favorite time of year…so you hit a “weak spot!”
    (((hugs)))

  3. In my mind, I can see them drifting down to land. 🙂

  4. I don’t know which is more lovely, the poem or the photo. Great job!!

  5. Yes indeed – another perfect ‘package’ I just love your haiku, I can just about smell the air…and I agree with Sandy the photo is a stunner as well. Just wonderful – I’m looking forward to winter more and more each day 🙂

  6. Perfect haiku to that picture, G.

    I like the idea of classic poetry coupled with a pic on your blog too. But then again, I like classic poetry. 😉

  7. I’m a summer person, but I can appreciate the beauty of winter provided I’m wrapped up!

  8. Hi Sue, And the sound of squawking geese perhaps? 😉

    Hi Sallee, You know, I actually remembered that from last year, re: your love of winter. Perhaps it’s because so few people like winter very much. For me, there is a special beauty in all seasons, I love them all! Autumn is still my fav. though.

    Hi Jason, And don’t they make for a stunning sight in their amazing v formations ?

    Hi Sandy, Coming from someone who writes beautiful haiku/haiga poems and takes such incredible photos, I am indeed honored. Thanks Sandy!

    Hi Kayt, You are so nice dear Kayt, thanks so much for your continued support.

    Hi Carrie, I thought the words and photo were well matched too. Thanks Carrie.

    Hi Carole, It’s all in the layering, isn’t it? Now that we are living in BC, the winters are so mild. Growing up on the Prairies, it was another story. Brrrrrr….

    Thanks for your visits to MPP and comments, much appreciated, G 🙂

  9. Very peaceful here G. I’m getting back into haiku and forgot how much I loved it. HUG

  10. Wonderful words accompanying a lovely winter scene. Beautiful post ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

  11. That’s a wonderful piece. That is the quiet calm that I love. Thanks, Geraldine.

  12. Hi Tammy, I love it too! Can’t wait to read some of your haiku poems.

    Hi HR Gal, Thanks so much!

    Hi Sandy, I love peace and tranquility so much. Hard to find some days though… 😦

    Hugs and thanks for stopping in, G

  13. This is a beautiful piece with just the right touch of melancholy, but the good kind of melancholy that makes you drink in the crispness of the winter air and makes you feel hopeful for the new year. Love your snow!

  14. Lovely. On the colder days I wish I could go with the geese. I hadn’t realized that you don’t have Blue Jays in B.C. When I lived there for a short while I was not a bird watching person and never noticed.

  15. I always love reading your haiku poems Ger. This is very beautiful!

  16. Hi Selma, I never thought of the melancholy aspect, while I was writing this. Interesting interpretation. I love the ‘snow’ too! 😉

    Hi Ann, We don’t see many birds except for crows and sparrows here, we were surprised too. Love to visit your blog and catch up with all your nature photos, impressive!

    Hi Joe, Thanks dear!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, G
