Winter Haiku: After the Ice Storm

We were kept awake late into the night by the sounds of ice hammering our rooftop and pelting the window panes. Morning brought the sun (finally!) and as it rose, we just had to take pictures of the beautiful, crystalized treetops against the blue sky.

And then we wrote a haiku. We call it After the Ice Storm.

Trees of winter white
Raise diamond fingertips to
Praise the rising sun

If you don’t remember what a haiku is, it is a short verse made up of 17 syllables: five in the first line, seven in the second and five in the third.

We would love to see your winter-themed haikus. Post them here in the comments or share on our facebook page (corresponding images are welcome there, too).
