Haiku for a Cold Thursday

Anger at others
who don't believe as you do
is a waste of life

Snow fairies falling
to earth, twinkling satellites
circling in a waltz

Slashes of scarlet
birds in a mass of gray twigs
at rest in the cold

Fear is like trying
to stop a roller coaster
with your bare feet

Oh, that last one made me cringe. Very vivid.

Slashes of scarlet... I love the imagery.

Have a great weekend!

Yes, your imagery is amazing. Just that little piece of color, then wham that last punch!
