Haikus: Burdens & Chocolate Longing

My haikus for RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Challenge–a fun activity and contest that is open for everyone to participate, and helps keep our creative writer’s mind active! This week’s words are: Pine & Grief.

Snow burdens the pine
Dripping grief, a heavy weight,
Waiting for dawn’s light.


“Chocolate Longing”
Zombie eyes pine through
The glass, a gloom barrier,
Between chocolate.

How to read a haiku:
Zombie eyes pine through the glass, a gloom barrier.
The glass, a gloom barrier, Between chocolate.

  1. Awwww, a winter poem. It’s very pretty, but also a little sad too. And it sort of reminds me of that freak snowstorm we had around Halloween a couple years ago. So many trees still had leaves on them at that point, so the snow weighed down the branches even more. It was tough not having power for a couple days after that. :/

    “The glass, a gloom barrier, / Between chocolate.” Yes. This is exactly how I describe looking at chocolates in a candy store. Because you look at them through the glass, and then you want ALL THE CHOCOLATES. *LOL*

    • That ice storm, yes, it was dreadful! We lost power for over a week. 😦 I learned the true meaning of “cold” then.
      EXACTLY! You read my thoughts, Sara! It’s so hard to resist the candy store when you see all of those chocolates. Instead I stare through the glass. 😉

      • And what was even worse about that freak snowstorm was that it came about 8 weeks after Hurricane / Tropical Storm Irene. I don’t know what kind of impact the storm had up in NH… But we lost power for 4 or 5 days then. (I think it was only 2 days in October.) So to have to go through that cycle of cold showers, no Internet or functioning laptop (unless I went to someone’s house or Panera Bread), and having to throw out all the food in my fridge twice in 2 months was gutting. 😦

        That, and the first night without power after the October storm was c-c-c-cold…


        • I think we lost power for a day or so from Irene, but other towns weren’t so well. For us it was really the ice storm that dealt a huge blow. There are so many trees here that streets were littered with fallen trees and knocked down powerlines. It was a mess… It was so cold that every breath felt like it was filling my lungs with ice and I could not sleep. To say I was miserable would be an understatement. The cold really was the worst part; it was far below zero degrees. And we couldn’t get out to drive anywhere for the first few days… 😦
