The Sound of Thin Ice

Carpe Diem prompt: Thin Ice
Haiku Circle prompt: Sound

fragile lives encased
in bubbles cold and blue
until one day is heard
sounds of thin ice snapping

fragile lives
encased in thin ice
breaking through

sounds of cracking ice
warn of an unstable route
rethinking the path

Spring Storms and Gardens

Carpe Diem prompt:  First Spring Gust

hawk's search for nourishment
suspended by spring's dark storm
critters have moved to shelter
hawk moves on

hawk's search suspended
critters driven to shelter
hides from spring's dark storm

a dark storm passes 
leaving behind first spring gust
and sweet scents of spring

after spring's warm rain
seeds sprout, plants bloom, gardens grow
food for the summer
