Today is also ending--
at the bottom of the snowstorm
the gigantic sun

Thank you Vida! Snow a real treat to have in London, the normal weather here is either 'light grey' or 'dark grey':)

The snow in Hull isn't silent, but all the more interesting because of that! ;-)

But I agree, listening to snow is a great treat.

Thanks Alan, but what you are saying is interesting.... the 'sound' of snow? An explanatory haiku please...:) with what kind of sound that is.

Hi Beatrice,

Well, nothing is really silent, as even silence has its own noise. ;-)

In Hull where I've been as part of the Hull Global Renga there's been blizzards and hailstones, as well as thundersnow.

Here's a draft haiku, developing on from my earlier post (and image):

thundersnow
a couple dancing
the blues away
