5 Winter Haiku by Wynne Huddleston

Tires served on a trailer
like chocolate doughnuts, iced
with powdered sugar.

Sturdy trees shudder
as wind skis between them. Snow
falls from their shoulders.

Rain tiptoes in snow,
leaving footprints; icicles
cry from the fascia.

Sugar-coated pine
needles, holly in thorns, iced
rocks, sun exposes. 

Sun forces Snowman
into his wet grave; he awaits
