Chill

a song filled with wind ~ a forest filled with blue leaves ~ winter’s heart of ice —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Deep winter

ice-blue in her eyes ~ and her hands like two cold spoons ~ sending you away — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Soft

your day wears a shirt ~ of pure winter-grey cashmere ~ brushed against my heart — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Cold

you look at my days ~ through the windows of winter ~ seeing summer sun — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

I disappear

in the winter grey ~ all clear perspective is lost ~ a blurred horizon — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Baltic winter

seagulls in the wind ~ drift against the ice-cold air ~ waiting for the sun — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

 

Northern winter: Malmö, Sweden; December 2017

the days a mere blush ~ enveloped in the darkness ~ of these winter nights — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Winter stroll

a still afternoon ~ our winter home full of love ~ green moss on the stones

Winter indulgence

a ripe papaya ~ tasting like the yellow sun ~ pleasure of the day
