Snow Fall

Snow fell snow on snow
Its hush shrank the world softly
Back to slow pleasures

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

  2. Lovely, missing all that white glory here. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Great capture Seonaid!

    Shrank the world softly … just lovely.
    As is this image.

  5. Robin says:

    How lovely! The haiku and the image are wonderful. I wish I could step into the scene. We rarely see that kind of snow here (and I think I must be related to a snow queen because I love snow).

  6. Ese' s Voice says:

    So real that I suddenly felt like tucking myself in…far away from the attack of the snowflakes ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. ladyfi says:

    Hurray for snow!

  8. pommepal says:

    I know that must be very cold Seonaid, I can almost remember the feel of it from 50+ years ago when I lived in Yorkshire, but somehow the golden glow from those lamps give it a warmer feel.

  9. Fantastic image to go with your haiku, Seonaid, although I know the image came first. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My slow pleasures would be me plopped in my recliner in front of a roaring fire in the fireplace with a stack of good books to read! Enjoy your snow!

  11. icelandpenny says:

    Yes, perfect (as your first comment says). “Slow pleasures,” yes. Magic.

  12. restlessjo says:

    You could step right into that photo, Seonaid! (I know- you stepped out of it to take the shot ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I can feel the hush ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Leya says:

    Lovely haiku. It settles like cottonwool snow in my soul.

  14. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Your haiku and photo are so lovely the snow is almost appealing!

  15. Amy says:

    Look so cool! But, I love this snow photo, beautiful capture!

  16. poppytump says:

    You’ve had some too !!
    Lovely haiku …the quietness of it .

  17. Slow pleasures are tops.

  18. Ah, snow, one of the many ‘joys’ of winter. I hope you like snow Seonaid. The way you’ve captured the weather with your words and with your photo makes it seem not-that-bad! Perhaps you could shed a bit of that light down here in Pennsylvania? D

    • I must confess to liking a bit of snow in winter…as long as the roads are well gritted for travelling…or even better at weekends or on non-work days! It makes everything so pretty and bright, covering over all sorts and glittering like magic. It always makes me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

    Perfect little haiku.Is this Edinburgh?
