  1. Miriam, what a delightful image you paint of your first snow! πŸ˜€ I’m picturing the boy so proudly walking along with huge snowball and unlike many I do actually enjoy scraping my car windows in winter! Now, the icy roads are another matter! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Two beautiful haikus capturing the magic of the season! More please … and more snow too! Hugs xx

    • Annika, thank you very much for your delightful comment. This was a scene I saw from my kitchen
      window and promptly jotted down. I wrote two haikus as to show the difference of the reaction
      between adults and children.
      Now, you liking scraping the car window just shows; we all feel different.
      I also feel snow brings magic. Hug

    • Thank you, Suzette, for your kind appreciation. There is indeed something soothing about the first
      snow falling. a stillness that invites to celebration….alas, not for cars.
      Peace to you too, Suzette

  2. What fun, Miriam. Especially the child with the large snowball. At 77, I can still get in a snowball fight. πŸ™‚ Still, there are limits:

    Putting chains on
    Language not so good
    Wife hides in car

    • Curt, let me first say, I adore your Haiku, it really has me laughing.
      A, more adults liking snow. You are fit, why shouldnt you enjoy. I get very competitive
      in a snowball fight but building a snow house out of big snowballs is safe fun. And
      cosy place for a hot drink.
      thank you

    • Thank you so much, Balroop, and may we all keep the child within us.
      Even if layered with new delights. You enjoy the season too and we will albeit
      in smaller groups.
      Thank you also for promoting me to write, at times you need that. πŸ’•.

    • Sharon, thank you for your heartfelt comment. The poems were triggered by a scene outside my window that actually made my memory flash back to my
      son and his proud work in building snow man and me and my brothers building snow houses. Quick trip whilst making breakfast and watching neighbours. 😊.
      I come from Sweden where winters are snow filled and bright. England also gets snow but normally not long lasting. South California sounds like a dream to sun hungry Northerners.

    • You are so right, Andrea, it doesn’t often last long in England although there
      are exceptions. Snow is exhilarating as it first falls but can easily turn to slush.
      Still, our memories are of joy.
      Thank you for your lovely comment.
