Winter haiku

Even rarer than sunny days in winter here, are below zero celcius days of dry cold snow. Sunday night I came out of  the Ukrainian hall (after enjoying a colourful dance performance) in Strathcona, an old area of Vancouver, and it felt like I was walking into a different world. By then it was dark, the streets were pretty much empty, and there was a different feel in the air from the snow on the ground and the unusual cold. With the old row houses dating back to the turn of the last century, I could have been stepping back in time to Dickens’ world….Couldn’t resist going for a walk….

breaths puff in crisp air

Christmas lights reflect on snow

stillness holds the street

    Winter Haiku

    Silent snow falling
    winter draped in black and white
    dressed for the season

    The time of year when
    the spirit of Christmas lives
    hopefully for all
