White Feathers, Like Snow (3 Haiku)

  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.

White Feathers, Like Snow (3 Haiku)

White feathers slowly

spiral through the air, like snow,

though I don’t want to


catch them on my tongue

because they’ve fallen from the

marred body of a


dove, which sat perched up

in a tree, and is now gone,

its remains with me.

I , too, started writing poetry at an early age; then life crashed down on me with the fierce demands of our selfish, soul-sucking society put that fire almost out. I adore reading and writing Haiku as well as sonnets; my two most-loved forms of poetic structure. I also was a shy girl, with not many friends, a true introvert. I have found this site to be an outlet for the creative spark refusing to be extinguished entirely; I hope you will find it useful. I love the way you expressed the sadness to be found even although these Haikus express the natural cycle of life. What lies within you is a true gift, so you are beautiful, dearest.



Thank you, I truly appreciate your feedback. Poetry really is the greatest friend; it never leaves, always rising up out of the shadows when needed or summoned. It speaks the words that are sometimes too hard to say to someone in person. I will be sure to read your work. --Natalie.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
