You spin in diamond
Pale as the snow you came from
Spring sends you away

haikus always get to me. I always find myself puzzling over hidden meanings and reading inbetween the lines. You told so much with so few words, I love it!

I love this Haiku :) But the word Diamond kind of through me off, because I always through it could be three syllables :p but I still liked it.

I thought these comments were supposed to be positive and constructive ;) Nice work Elizabeth. A very nice haiku - could I make a few pointers?? I'm going to anyway...

Try and create the meaning of the poem so that it skimms below the surface of the writing.

But anyway I think it's great!

The title of this reminded me of the Elliott Smith song "Snow Angel", so in reading it, I was almost expecting something similar just because the title sort of called that to mind. And let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed. Short, simple, to the point, but very poignant.
