White memories


white pearl box 
forget-me-not blooms,
frozen kiss

~0~0

arctic land
father's memories,
torch-lit night

~0~0


fur blankets
wrapping wooden sled,
buried cross

~0~0

sea iceberg
drifts as lone white bear,
silent cry

  3. That fur blanket wouldn't happen to be white bear fur, would it?
    Hauntingly lonely in a way, things lost, wrapped in white . . . .

  16. I adore reading haiku; and these create a vivd scene grouped together, yet are individually powerful in their own right.

  26. I like how you tied all the images together associated by the whiteness, vastness, and coldness. This strikes me as nostalgic, melancholic memories ... the mood you created ...

  27. I like that first one.. its like a souvenir of some parting moment.. very imaginative, and graceful too!

    And the second, it talks of anxiety I think. Cheers!
