freshly fallen snow --
opening a new package
of typing paper
Nick Avis. From "The Haiku Anthology. Revised Edition." (Edited by Cor van den Heuvel, 1991)
The image of the unblemished, pure white snow reverberates with that of the new sheets of white typing paper. I imagine that this fresh, new start-type of feeling that looking at the new snow has instilled in the writer has caused them to decide to begin writing a book, rather than just opening a new package to continue on with some project that is already underway. A perfect haiku to start a New Year!
