Snow Day Haiku from the New York Times

/https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/25/haiku-saved-for-a-snowy-day/

As cottony white flakes float downward like confetti (at least in Midtown at 10:09 a.m.), we offer a selection of haiku that you, our dear readers, wrote, inspired by one of the last snowy days.

White snow in the park
Celebrate with comfort food
Resolutions fade

— Ruth


Swirl sideways, up, down
Each with a mind of its own
Peace before chaos

— Robert Fox

Mister and misses
cardinal sit lightly but
still the pines drop snow

— James Moening

More inconvenience
Snow and trash and late for work
At least not bed bugs

— Anwar Ragep


snow falling softly
now white and clean, soon becomes
the slush that we dread

— Ellen

Pale snowflakes fall fast,
As do Bloomberg poll numbers.
Grab a shovel, Mike.

— M. A. Darling

Flurries from the sky
Make me want to call in sick
And curl up in bed.

— Kelsey

snowflakes, large as leaves,
brush these buildings’ steel skins like
butterfly kisses

— hairlessOrphan

on the salted rim
of the hudson’s frozen drink
your brain is the lime

— specialeddie

lovely for a day
in New York it soon turns gray
trash pick-up delay

— Anna

Crunching under foot
Once again I shovel snow
To avoid lawsuit

— Frank Jump

Plows scraping blacktop –
Overkill now can’t undo
December’s failures.

— No. 2

Give Yourself Permission to Create


So often, permission to create is denied to us through a variety of societal restraints as well as self imposed restrictions of judgements and insecurities. To create is a right you are born to fulfill. And what better way to begin creating than in an unlined journal. Write your thoughts and add your sketches. You deserve the right to find your voice.
