Winter Sneak Peek from Haiku Reflections II





Feeling your presence.

Velvet rose, good-time clothes.

Winter memories.


Saturday morning.

Croissants and coffee in bed.

Plum jam, with kisses!


Mittens on a string.

Bundling up the little ones.

First day at the rink.


Haiku Reflections II is now available in print and Kindle versions, over at Amazon!

I’m so happy to have this latest book completed and happy how it turned out too.

Even have my first review over at Amazon already, woohoo…thanks L! 🙂 

I’ve shared a sneak peek from the Winter section of the book, above.

Winter can be a tough time for all of us. But I hope that these poems bring to mind, some of the magic of this upcoming season.


Happy Weekend (and Black Friday Shopping!) to All. 🙂

  7. lovely. I like this time of year.

  8. Very nice haiku!

    (I don’t know why you are given some kind of warning at Poets United. Very odd really. I hope we will see you there again sometime soon. There should be no problem with the site.)

  9. Beautiful, Geraldine. And a big congratulations! 🙂

  10. It can be a beautiful season, I agree. Spirit of Simplicity is such a great blog name btw!

    It happened twice Mary, over at Poets United. I didn’t want to risk anything with my computer. But I do miss participating. 😦 I’ll try again soon and see what happens.

    Thanks for your kind words. Nice to see you again too.

    Happy Weekend, G

  11. Really enjoying your haikus and some of the other things on your blog. 🙂
