White Christmas (haibun)

December 23rd, the temperatures rose over 10 degrees Celsius. It was springtime weather at the end of December.  Two days of rain cleaned the streets, sullied snow banks and melted most of the snow. Makes it doubly hard for half-doubters..one of my three grandsons… to still believe but painstaking stories, Crosby’s songs and want-to-believe children makes it still happen…one more year.

grey puddles
born from melted snow
earth’s enigma

White Christmas
fairy-tales echo
crooner’s refrain

  1. We had an unusually warm winter all the way up until Wednesday night when a snow storm finally blew in. It snowed all day yesterday ( in varying amounts) and the snow is still here this morning!

  2. Hope you had a great Christmas and Feast of St. Steven …. I liked the closing line: Crosby’s songs and want-to-believe children makes it still happen…one more year … and the haiku were lovely.
