Winter Haiku Poems 5 7 5

Silent Snowfall

Snow's silent whisper,
Bare branches cradle moonlight,
Peace in cold's embrace.
Silent winter night


Silent Snowfall” encapsulates the serenity of a winter’s night. The haiku focuses on the gentle descent of snow, the quietude it brings, and the comforting glow of moonlight as it illuminates the skeletal trees. It’s a snapshot of the tranquil moments that winter can offer—a world hushed and cradled in peace.

Inspirations Behind

As I composed “Silent Snowfall,” I was inspired by the profound silence that accompanies a fresh snowfall. The way the moonlight seems to hold the world in a tender embrace, and the branches reach up to the sky, as if in gratitude for the stillness, moved me to capture this moment in the concise form of a haiku.
