Five haiku for a Rochester February

by Christina Gleason

In dim winter skies
the day's colors will fade first,
get blue, then blacken.
Condensed breath kicks back-
the wet, white words in the air
make our faces pink.
The wind when we sleep
rails at us to be let in,
becomes dreams' soundtracks.
After you have gone
the moon will be full again-
an eye, opening.
Days have become warm,
wash the world for waiting March-
the grays before green.
