Haiku about the weather
by Joel Hammond-Turner

This is a rolling haiku that should evocatively describe the weather and environment thoughout the year. The original suggestion was a haiku about the weather on the slopes of Mount Fuji - but  we are now making this open to a haiku about the weather anywhere.

The standard haiku format is a triplet of lines containing five, seven, and five syllables per line.


Title: January Blues
Author: Cherry Lyons

Grey, wet, winter sky.
Dreary, weary, depressing.
Two more months follow.

Thick fluffy blanket
Exclusive footsteps design
Limited supply

Bright powder blue sky
Ice capped silver birch trees
Shimmer resplendent.

Pummeled, savaged, floored.
Raging, heartless, relentless.
Wild storms conquer all. 

Title: Winter Morning

Frost laced countryside.
Crystal skies, sparkling sunshine.
Snowdrops peeping through.

Title: Gloom with no view
Author: Pamela Lloyd

Dirty, lazy sky.
Suffocating gloominess.
S.A.D. time of year.

Title: Grimy Commute
Author: Geraldine Harper

Wearisome journey.
Damp, drizzly, miserable.
Van doors read "WASH ME".

Title: New Horizon

Look up to pleated,
sun-streaked clouds. Look down to green,
luminous Spring shoots.

Title: Interlude

Cutting winter's gloom
our spirits are lifted by
scented Spring flowers.

by carpets of Spring flowers;
Smiling comes easy.

Crisp twilight sparkle;
the sky throws on its winter
cloak. The air soon chills.

Title: Weather Forlorn

Perpetual heavy falls
wipe out their namesake.

Faces skyward as we walk.
This is more like it!
