*Author’s Note: The following is my attempt at a haiku. Now, haiku’s are short Japanese poems that are generally three lines long–the first line contains 5 syllables, the second 7, and then it concludes with 5 again. They also tend to be observations on nature and one’s surroundings–the “I” pronoun is hardly used. Because haiku’s are meant to be in Japanese, it can be rather tricky to write one in English, so this haiku will most definitely not follow the 5-7-5 pattern. However, I will do my best to incorporate the overall feel of a haiku.*
Northern wind scathes,
flecks of snowy cold hit the ground.
Clouds roll and winter breathes.
