Haiku: New Year's Eve - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

new year's eve
she says last year's eve
feels like yesterday

inspired by:

New Year’s Eve —
she teaches me
how to breathe
Sabine Miller

cold morning rain
the dream catcher
so still

inspired by

cold morning rain:
all the swoosh is gone
from the fallen leaves
Charles Trumbull

bus stop
the returning birds chatter louder
than us

inspired by

bus stop —
the winter dance
of cold feet
Adelaide Shaw

dusk
the orange glow
on his face

inspired by

what the raven
has to say about them
snow clouds
Cindy Zackowitz


frosty morning
an old man boxes
his shadow

Vanessa Proctor




tooth marks
in the sharp cheddar...
the long night

Robert Bauer


New Year’s Day
the sycamore’s
uneven shadow

Peggy Heinrich


winter dawn —
waiting for the school bus
kids pretend to smoke

Kevin Paul Miller


first snow!
the congregation of birds
suddenly bolder

Carmen Sterba


taps...
a snowflake melts
on her dimple

Nara Bauer
