    Ice Pellets drop down
    Tires slide all over road
    Ice Pellets don’t care

  4. @ Crayon – didn’t she do great?? Those are snowflakes! When I took the picture a gust of wind blew snow all over me and the sun was shinning through the flakes! Don’t you love them?
    @ John, that’s because you didn’t even do it right! Easy to remember 5-7-5 syllables!! But I guess that’s why I leave it up to the kids to come up with these great nature haikus!!

  7. Tell ‘E’ it is beautiful.
    And a winter wonderland photo. 😉

  8. Beautiful photo – it really captures the icy winter beauty. Isn’t it fun working with young people who are interested in and appreciate nature?

    These haikus are great! And the pictures that accompany them are too. Does the photo come first or the Haiku? Those younguns will keep you young. Not that you need this at your age. I was thinking more about myself. :/

  10. @ Nita – and they do such a wonderful job with it!
    @ Marvin – thanks and she did do great!
    @ Toni – they read this and enjoy your comments!
    @ Wren – it sure is fun working with them! Thanks
    @ Lisa – actually while talking to them on the phone . . . I said that “I needed some winter haiku poems”. Within a very short phone conversation they were able to come up with 4 different ones. Then I try to pick a photo from what their creative minds come up with.

  13. Great job, E! I like your Haiku.

    That’s a magical photo, Tom. Looks so quiet and peaceful and COLD.

  14. Nice picture and Haiku. I didn’t know about 5,7,5 syllables. You learn something new every day!

  15. Wow–it’s 66 degrees here in Virginia. Almost makes me want it to snow but not quite. Tell Naturalist E I love the Haiku–perfect with the picture.

  16. Wow – Wonderful Haiku and Wonderful photo!
    I am impressed! Great Job “E”!

    PS – are you scheduled for more snow/ice this week? It’s 68 degrees here today.

  17. @ Marg – glad you enjoyed this, E did great with it!
    @ RuthieJ – sent you an email . . Thanks!
    @ Mary – cold it is and I am very lucky to have them helping with my blog!
    @ Erie – that is the main key of Haikus but also read something about 5-7-5-7-7!! Did you know there is blogs that are specifically geared to Haiku?
    @ Joan – would rather have the 66!! LOL I believe she will be finding everyone’s comments here soon!
    @ Kerri – she does great for sure! I have the weather man on right now and hearing about rain/mix/snow! Yep!
