Haiku by Glenn Munroe

scudding clouds forewarn
forces churn beyond our sight
tie the summer down!

the old tree wants in
its branches scratch my window
i bolt shut my door

snowflakes swoop and slide
dancing random pirouettes
my tongue tastes their deaths

winter stalks despair
like a pack of lean white wolves
let your soul burn hot

memories of love
tongues flesh limbs lips and laughter
the promise of spring
