Haiku Reflections: Spring IS On the Way!

spring IS on the way haiku

We had a glorious, sunny day yesterday, here in Interior BC.

Joe and I took some time off from work/chores/to-do-lists and decided to take a LONG walk.

We ended up down at our lake shore, sitting in the sun, soaking up some rays and good energy. šŸ™‚

It felt so good to have sun on my face again and to see a really clear, blue sky, šŸ™‚ after too many weeks of dark cloudy days. šŸ˜¦

Spring really IS on the way here.

How about where you are? Any signs of spring?Ā 

Have a wonderful week! Ā

Are You Yearning for Snow???


yearning haiku

I am! šŸ˜‰

We’ve had quite a bit of rain recently, here in BC but just a bit of snow that melts before it hits the ground at lower elevations (where we are).Ā 

This haiku and photo came to mind today, as I scanned the cloudy skies.

Any snow where you are?

Have a wonderful, magical weekend! šŸ™‚

Three Haiku Poems on the Cusp of Winter


Pulling up the quilt.

Heavy snow, all through the night.

Winter on the way.


A chill in the air.

Wrapping my scarf, one more time.

Snowflakes from the sky.


A windy, cold night.

Branches strewn across the path.

Winter on the way.


PS: We had a bit of snow here in Interior BC, the past couple of days, but it’s melting now.

Winter IS on the way though.

Hope you enjoy these three haiku poems, on the cusp of this magical season to come.Ā 

What is your weather doing? Any snow?

Have a wonderful week! šŸ™‚
