       I was reading a lot of Asian (not necessary haikus) when I wrote this. I see a lot of what I was reading in it.

    The trees have been reduced to skeletons;
    the ice makes me slide.
    I hate not hearing the songs of birds,
    yet, the snow is as beautiful
    as the bloom of spring.

      Good one Amy. Yes i can see the japanese influence even to your usually minimalist style.to me this is accomplished by describing winter in simple, succinct imagery, the "cutting" to the idea of spring...showing 2 disparate views,while linking them together. I too am weary of winter, and yesterday when i woke, the willow in my yard was truly heaped with soft globs of thick, fluffy, wet snow. In the early hours, i saw a Magnolia tree in full bloom, ..then went back to bed lol. Same idea. You poem, especially in light of that early morning experience, was a true "Haiku Moment" even though not truly a Haiku itself. Thanks, Silver
