Winter to Spring

reading Psalms
on a Sunday morning
winter’s rest

shoveling . . .
scent of mint
through snow

This haiku was published in Time Of Singing, their 25th Anniversary Volume, in 1998.

Cold

Icebergs along the shore, and ice in the waters of Lake Michigan.  No waves.  Steam rises from the lake and is part of the clouds.  Much of the sky though is a clear blue.
