winter haiku d’hiver – the icy shimmer = la glace qui reluit 

the icy shimmer
in your crystallized eyes
reflects your death

la glace qui reluit
dans tes eyes cristallisés,
reflet de ta mort

Are people so afraid of death that they cannot stand this haiku? Sometimes I have to wonder...

winter haiku d’hiver –lavender river = fleuve de lavande

lavender river
drifting through misty hills
in the icy gloom

fleuve de lavande
suivant les collines brumeuses
dans le noir glacial

This haiku is based on the composite of two photos taken by Regis Auffray in January 2019 of the river flowing past his house in the Fraser Valley.  The scene is set in British Columbia.

Cet haiku est basé sur le composite de deux photos prises par Regis Auffray en janvier 2019 du fleuve qui s’écoule au delà de sa maison dans la Vallée Fraser.  Le paysage se déroule en Colombie-Britannique.

the ice-encrusted
pine and spruce forest

la glace argentée
sur les pins et sapins
en plein soleil

It should be obvious by now that one of my favourite winter season words or kigo is “silver”, which in not a Japanese kigo at all. But I have firmly established it as a Canadian winter kigo.

It est enfin bien évident que l’un des mots-saisons ou mots d’hiver que j’utilise souvent, c’est le mot « argent », qui n’est guère un kigo japonais. Mais je l’ai nettement établi comme kigo canadien d’hiver.    



winter haiku d’hiver – a snow hare = le lièvre de neiges

a snow hare

sous la lune glacée
