Cold Shadow #atozchallenge #poetry #photography

c in the snow

imprint in the snow

crystalline shadow

cold leaves its mark


cold leaves its mark

covering fall’s scars

melted remains


melted remains

white blanket memory

imprint in the snow


the haiku cascade allows the poet to continue a thought while maintaining the quality of the haiku form.


“If a poet is anybody, he is somebody to whom things made matter very little – somebody who is obsessed by Making.
~e.e. cummings


As a writer/ poet what are you obsessed with making????

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Imprint in the shadow,crystalline snow , sounds beautiful , this beauty is hard to take when we have to shovel to clear it. Poets make everything sound so beautiful!
    Thank you Leslie I love your poem.


  2. Beautiful, wonderful–I just learned of this form recently, and will post my first attempt soon. Yours, and the others I’ve seen, make for hard acts to follow.


  3. Thank you for visiting my blog today. It is nice meeting such a talented person. I enjoyed your haiku poetry. Thank you for sharing


  4. Novels. I could draft novels forever not really mattering about the finished item.. None of mine are finished.. yet I’m struggling doing the AtoZ while April Camp nano’s on and I could be drafting my next novel.. obsessed? me? maybe..
    Great C, Lovely haiku


  5. I enjoy Haiku and dabble, myself, but I’ve never heard of Haiku Cascade. Thanks for the info–will have to try it! This is a very informative, creative and enjoyable theme you’ve got going! Can’t wait to see all 26!


  6. I didn’t even know haiku cascade is a thing! I did a few a few months back as part of a poetry a day for a week challenge and though it was posted per day, it was written to be read continuously! Your haiku and the cascade thing make me so happy 🙂
