Haiku: Beckoning Winter Sky

I am in love with our little cabin in central Colorado.  “Little House in the Rockies” inspires me to create recipes, snap photos, write essays, poems and haiku, birdwatch…in general, to revel in nature and absorb its beauty and regenerative spirit.

Here’s one from a winter night when I was pleased to wake up very early and witness the night sky just beginning to transform into the welcoming dawn.

Beckoning Winter Sky

Eerie bluish glow
Brightness pierces the darkness
Moon shadows on snow

The most wonderful thing happened when I posted this haiku on Facebook at dawn on that lovely, moonlit morning. A haiku response popped up on my post within a few minutes:

Hush the still dark night
Darkness receding to light
Snow sparkling so bright

My friend’s contribution – all the way from Texas – perfectly described my Colorado experience that morning.
