snowdrops

gardens in winter
the serene snowfall
and remembering
where snowdrops
will bloom

The snowdrops here are blooming again.

In January 2016, we updated my Poet Details page at the Haiku Registry.  Billie Wilson was the Editor then.  The registry is a Resource at The Haiku Foundation. Please visit The Haiku Foundation for current information.

the last of the winter squash
