Fall chill in the air
Warmed with V - shaped formation
Geese migrate to fare.

Canada geese honks
At steel cold shotguns below...
Gone on well kept grounds.

Armed with credit cards
Canucks book travel agents
And give their regards

Seasons biting chill
Blue collars scurry on home
Avoids all, 'hey heys.'

Snow removed - iced glades
Skates await - their edge intact
As winter slaps back.

Vast northern absence
Huddled along the border
Amassed in the cold.

Winter doesn't mind
Nature cradles it's own kin
Should we be unkind.

Christian soldiers march
By passing the derelict
Rolls Icy bolder.

As wise men take heed.
Children unpeel their treasures
It must be Christmas.

Graced Yule time tributes
Gathered around a bronzed bird
Honered guest - in jest.

Taxing was his birth
Forfeiting His royal rights
To reclaim the earth.

Yule time passed away
Good will never seems to stay
As warmth turns it's back.

Blast of icy chill
Traces of numbered faces
Earth's cycle - relapsed?

Chills with it's ill grip
Biting to the bone's marrow
We need a reprieve!

Knowing numb faces
Ill clad commuters plod on
Accused snapping back.

Winter rests it's cold
As nature blinds her virtues
Spring steps in on course

As proof of shadows
Perched on - lookers take delight
Back tracks into lair.

Liked this very much--the effect of one haiku after another isn't repetitive, but cumulative. Especially liked the one "Winter doesn't mind"..
