Haiku and Senryu of Winter and Love

waiting now, anxious
lest the cold white invasion
smother all our hopes

a man and a woman
sculptured in snow, the snow shines
they melt into one

snowfall strikes silence
wind sings hosanna on high
harmony in nature

the earth turns to mud
love plants itself, furrows deep
into the thawed world

even loneliness
must shed its heavy coat, now
sparrows are heralds

ice covers the earth
cold, resolute, beautiful
only the sun shines

so many snowfalls, so
many buddings in spring, so
long to claim one's life
