Happy new year! (haiku of hope)

boom boom sparkling glow
love armies fire up in joy
no weapons this time!

Morning through the corridor window

The soothing green
a wishes-come-true pond
above, cotton clouds
higher up, the rising sun

The snow melts
into sparkling emerald
and the dry grass turns
into glowing gold

Blessings, promises
of a winter truly in love
as I kiss the morning
through the corridor window

as I open its doors

Hoera, hoela hoep with me
she runs to the fields
Hoera, hoela hoep with me
I'll meet my friend the snowman
who will dance with me
with my hoela hoep
we will laugh and sing

Little she knew
it could happen that fast
when she ran to her friend
and sobbed at her surprise
to only find a carrot,

a broom
and a wet woolen hat

(Hoera, hoela hoep with me
wake up my friend, she cried

and cried)

Winter (haiku)

Tip toe, cracking snow

break the icy hush

a little bird came to me today and sat on my shoulder... and he whispered... "life is a gift of hope"
