1.
pawprints in the snow
like a monochrome painting
white and white and white

2.
the freezing woods sleep
under a blanket of frost
nothing to be seen

3.
the chimney puffs smoke
children run and laugh and play
eyes and smiles bright

4.
cold and bare, they stand
trees and grass and plants and sky
waiting for the spring.



1.
as frost gives way to
dew, as flowers begin to bloom,
the world awakens

2.
the seedlings grow, the
trees proudly show their colors
every shade of green

3.
the rain falls down, the
children frown, yet to learn of
mud and mess and play

4.
time ticks by, good things
begin, temperature creeps up
school’s out, it’s summer!



1.
the sun is always
there, a reminder of the
heat and life and light

2.
the birds fly high, their
eggs hatch and grow and learn
sweet songs fill the air

3.
running and jumping
off to camp they go
kids enjoy their fun

4.
playtime ends and so
begins a race to get the best
supplies for fall.



1.
leaves turn brown and float
gently to the ground, a fire
of red and orange

2.
holidays go by
memories and scares and thanks
one for every month

3.
homework piles up
and yet the children find time
to romp and explore

4.
animals prepare
stocking food and finding homes
ready for winter.
a collection of
haikus, to tell a story
of a year gone by
