Working today and time for another break? Or are you feeling warm and cosy this Sunday afternoon, curled up on the sofa watching Christmas films? Whatever you’re doing, make sure you spare some time for this month’s selection of our three-minute Haiku.
You have a minute to read, a minute to ponder and a minute to decipher for each of them. That’s only nine minutes in total – perfect for a tea break.
Our selection is a little darker this month, but the second does promise snow, just not the one you’d hoped for.
Written by Blue-Eyed Devil – our very own Haiku Hero.
Whisper promises of sleep
On dead, blood-red leaves.
The cruellest of winds
Tears all the warmth from the world
Under pure, white guise.
Terror holds me tight,
Fingers of fear caress me
Cradled by despair.
