It speaks for itself.

Snowflakes a Haiku

The snowflakes gently
touch the eyelashes, turning
into icy tears.

Thanks you for your kind comment. I am glad this haiku evokes that image for you. It is not always clear to the author if a haiku is going to be successful in portraying the thing one had in mind, so it is nice to find out it works.

I love haiku's and this one was great. It captured so much of a picture and feeling in so few words that it was lovely. I can just see the snowflakes falling down.
