Love and Snow (a Haiku)

This Haiku are the words I wrote in a comment box to ‘Cheryl, Gulf Coast Poet’, for her post >> Summer Rain | Gulf Coast Poet … A big thank you to Cheryl for being the inspiration for my poem ..

Love and Snow

The rains come and go 

Summer’s good times turn to snow 

Joyous hope still grows

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Oh! Carole’s photo, your haiku, and the song…please pass the tissues. 🙂
    This haiku touches my heart! Thank you for reminding us that even in winter, dark, and cold times (physically and/or emotionally) joyous hope DOES still grow! 🙂
    You’re being a lighthouse-person again, Ivor! 🙂

  2. A lovely tribute to Carole, Ivor.

    Btw, here is my five-star review of Tullawalla on Amazon – “A beautifully illustrated book of poetry and prose. Heartfelt words of love, inspiration, and melancholia reflected in each and every poem by the author, Ivor Steven.”

  3. Beautiful photo of Carole wearing her heirloom coat! Gorgeous haiku and lovely music to go with it. I love your profoundly beautiful haiku! 🙂 A haiku reminds me of a quote from William Blake, “a world in a grain of sand!””Heaven in a wildflower.” Thank you so much, Ivor! ❤
