Haiku by A.J. Huffman

frost-bite's kiss lingers
a mere shiver against morning's
virgin smile

bobsleds pepper hillsides
sparkle like silver ornaments
against snow-covered trees

snowflake wonderland
my eyes struggle to discern
individual designs

red barn smothered in white
thawing, the world appears
to be bleeding

snowball fight erupts
children scramble for ammo
snowmen lose their heads
