Five Haiku Poems: Persistent Winter

Winter is like a bad date who doesn’t want to leave…

 

These cold winter winds

slice through clothes with icicle

fingers down my throat.

 

My tonsils tickle.

I cough out the frigid air,

yet Winter stays near.

 

He clings with sharp teeth –

draws blood, then falls on his knees.

Forgive me, he pleads.

 

I shake my head, No!

There can’t be any more snow.

You need to just leave.

 

He sighs, it was nice.

The way you harden my ice.

Please, one last kiss? Please?
