Snow Haiku

In his place of birth
a snowman is being buried
under the sunlight.

*

Michael Schumacher
drives softly through a roundabout
on a snowy day.

*

Snowflakes are falling
on my dark head and shoulders.
Heavenly dandruff.

  1. Love the ‘heavenly dandruff’ and the ‘snowman buried in sunlight’ you have changed the way I’ll look at snow from now on- good poems do that. Schumacher one made me chuckle!

  2. Thank you for reading this. The sad thing about a snowman is that he has to die in the place he was born. I didn’t think the image of dandruff was particularly poetic so I appreciate these comments.

    • Michael Schumacher is a very haiku-friendly name as it has five syllables. But I kind of feel he might not slow down even in the snow.

      • Five syllables if you give the first name an English pronunciation, but I think of him in a German accent as Mi-cha-el Schumacher!

      • So his authentic first name has three syllables! That reminds me my name Yuko has three syllable in Japanese, pronounced as Yu-u-ko.
