Haiku - First Morning

first morning
ice falling in whitened garden
discloses a chiming tune

small coin of sunlight
clear and cold on my window
proclaims this great turning

fluffing up in unison
flocks of doves on rooflines
breathe in and out with me

Written for the blithe and incandescent spirits who tend the wellsprings of eloquence, thoughtfulness and creativity at One Deep Breath.
