Carpe Diem Haiku – Frost and Wright


Georgia gives us this poem by Robert Frost:

Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued
.

And we also have a haiku by Richard Wright:

In the falling snow
A laughing boy holds out his palms
Until they are white.

And I will try to write something that express something from both these poems in the form of a haiku, both of them express how the snow gives joy or at least relief to a sad mind…

Therefore I write:

In the crow’s shadow
I become a child again –
making snow-angels

  1. The crow is so loaded with symbolism in literature. (Really I can’t think of another creature – off the top of my head – more so.) Though, here – becoming a child again, in its shadow – I tend to think of it in the sense of conferring magic and/or a prophetic sign. (A mystery pinned against a shadow – but why that shadow. Therein lies the puzzle. Very interesting) Once away, much to muse upon here – and wonderfully drawn, of course.
