Haiku by Pat Kopanda

hawk ghost
peers through a snow squall
from telephone wires

sunshine this cold day
from the semi truck’s roof
flying crystals

  1. Both terrific haiku. I’ll be haunted by the /hawk ghost/, and I love the image of the 18 wheeler flying through the icy air,, displacing it with billowing stacks and fat snow tires.

  2. Perfect poems for the first real snowfall of the season, in Toronto. And yes, I have memories of being covered in snow and slush, as the big rigs blast winter slush puddle. Not amused by it.

  3. This was a crisp cutting piece. Felt it in my bones Frank… :-). Hers is another aspect of winter…

    coarse lands cloaked in white
    lakes bejeweled in crystal
    winter’s dressing hand

  4. This is not the gentle soft fluffy currier and ive’s winter landscape, this is cutting icy brutal reality. Crisp, clean, and sensory. Please let Pat know this is so amazing.
