My wish: that we all
Remember that we have more
In common, than not.

The wind is blowing
snow is covering the ground
writing a haiku

By Iris  
I sit near my fire
poring down over my book
I'm loving what is

By Rowan  
It's cold the last snow
the trees have lost all their leaves
there are gusts of wind

By Kanaya  
It is very cold
soccer season is over
I have to wear gloves

By Grace
The violet thorns
move in the pine-scented breeze
shadows in the snow

By Miya  
It is cold outside
The frozen icicles drip
I stare mesmerized

By Alonzo
Dog sleeps by warm fire
Snow falls outside, branches hang
down like white glassy cloaks

By Julian  
Down we are going
The snow in our faces
Branches at our backs

I have a sweet dog
His legs kick in his weird dreams

Joy in January

Outside the snow falls
See the crackling fire
The feeling of joy

Fire burns in the stove
Fire dangerous burns your skin
Burning hot a lot

Snowflakes are yummy
in my tummy they make
me giggle so much

When the snow falls down
Look at the beautiful icicles
Good night to all people

Chilly wind on my nose
Breathing in, cold rests on my inner being
I settle into winter

Taking time for family
Sleeping in
Waking up to snow and play

Sun setting early
The shadows enters my bones
I bow to the darkness.

winter break for all
enjoying warm times inside
maybe take a walk

Contemplative Studies
     as snowflakes precisely land
     deep incense floating

     blustery mind,grasping
     hot tea soothing, magic cup
     holding emptiness

     white covered trees
     shielded from the bitter cold
     open view  mu shin

     paying attention
     clear sky fresh air stunned beauty
     winter turns us in

     see the snow falling
     the air..crisp...clear....purify
     healing my spirit

Once I sang a song
I sang it out from my heart
For no one but me

Once I spun around
And I did a crazy dance
For no one but me

Together we share
Would you like to hear and see?
Come have fun with me?

I will not be shy
It is safe to experiment
What could be more fun?
