Snowfall #haiku

A whirling white mix
Crystalline forms pirouette
Grand dance of winter


Written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. This week we were given two words but could only use synonyms. The words were mingle and drift. I wrote a haiku.


There is a piece of music by Claude Debussy, “Snow is Dancing” or, another translation, “Snowflakes are Dancing”. I was thinking of that. I love the electronic version by synth genius, Isao Tomita:

        We only get heavy snow maybe twice during the winter. And a blizzard of several feet maybe every 3 or 4 (or more) years.

        Snow can be picturesque, especially at dawn and dusk, before any animal or melting action :)

      Thanks, Diana. I think I was 12 when I discovered the music, mostly because I liked the picture of the synthesizer on the back cover of the album ;) But I’ve loved Debussy ever since, both acoustic and electronic.

        Right. Driving in it, sucks… but when you’re retired, its not as bad. You can pick and choose when you want to go out. LOL! I miss the seasons. In AZ you go from 110 degrees to 75 degrees or lower in one day. Like someone flipped a switch. You’re either hot, or cold! LOL! :D
