Frozen Rose Garden – A Haiku by Anita Bacha

Frozen rose garden 

Silent miles of snow whitens

Days without evenings 

Anita Bacha

Decades ago, a young woman arrived in England to pursue academic and professional studies. She came from a tropical island in the Indian Ocean where the sun shines all through the two tropical seasons, summer and winter.

A white cotton ball fell on the tip of her nose ,one December morning while she hurried to Earl’s Court tube station on her way to Lincoln’s Inn at Chancery Lane.

That first ball was followed by uncontrollable number of snow flakes. She cried with joy!That young woman was me.

It was the first time I saw snow in my life!

Now I enjoy writing about snow and winter.

Happy Holidays!

Author: Anita Bacha

Creative and inspirational writer of stories, poetry, and haikus I am also an addictive reader of novels, poetry, haiku, and children's storybooks. I am the author of SOUL POETRY a book of inspirational poems, verses, and quotes published by Partridge India (2015) The Maker of Miracles (2006) published in the USA by Dorrance Publishing and My Journey with God (2008) published under the banner of Sai Towers, India is the narration about my spiritual journey. My new poetry book INK Echo of life and love published by Éditions de L’Ocean Indien (2019) in Mauritius, my birth country is a collection of love poems extolling the feelings and desires of women. The Princess and the Crow is my first storybook for children, released by Austin Macauley Publishers London in March 2019. Two years later, I was inspired to write and published two other books - WAKASHIO, a storybook for children, and PINK MOON - AN ANTHOLOGY OF HAIKU POEMS. I love to write. I guess my writing has a special cliché of island 🌴 life, natural, unpretentious, and full of beauty.

      1. Ok let’s keep our fingers crossed 🤞
        Have you read about the 🦤 an extinct bird that lived on the island 🏝️? History says that the whole colony of dodos were eaten by the Portuguese who settled on the island before the French.

      2. Yes. It is an iconic species in ornithology and a warning of the impact humans have on the ecosystem. There were actually more than one species, but all were killed.

    1. Thank you for your visit,David. Winter in London does not look the same as it did to the eyes of an eighteen years old in the 1960s.Now with pollution in the air the days are dark at dawn. Still I love the snow ⛄️ It brings back beautiful memories of my first love 💗 thank you once more for reading, my dear friend. Happy holidays!
