Winter Haiku

by Neal Whitman

short day winter walk–
fog settles across the bay
cutting trees in half

Neal Whitman is a member of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society of San Jose and the Haiku Poets of Northern California. Though contemporaries vary the syllable count, Neal likes to stick to the traditional 5-7-5 structure and to use a “kigo,” a word or phrase associated with the season such as “winter walk.”
