White Christmas


white Christmas snowflakes-
a pine tree shines in winter light;
time for togetherness


  snow falls in the woods;
a mantel of happiness
envelops my heart


frosted country road-
a pine tree stands tall
by calm blue waters


on a winter morning-
snow sprinkles bright cheer
from a generous sky


  sparkling reindeer-
gifts of peace and love
cover the earth


on Christmas day,
snow angels bring hope-
rejoicing in harmony

What a Merry White Christmas it was today! It started snowing on Christmas Eve right before midnight, as we were heading to midnight Mass. This Christmas morning, we woke up to blue, sunny skies and snow-covered grass and pine trees. I took a wonderful walk by the lake and in the woods in the countryside of Connecticut. We spent a lovely Christmas with our family and great scenic views. Enjoy my photographs and haiku!

  19. What gorgeous scenery! I live in the Sonora Desert, and our snows are once-yearly occurrences. With saguaro and sage in place of pines and birch, the scenery is quite different!
