winter hibernates

frozen conversations thaw

heralds vibrant spring

 

In response to Carpe Diem , exploring beauty of haiku #1826 :Juxtaposition

A challenge to write a haiku in which we use juxtaposition.

Any time unlike things bump up against each other, you can describe it as a juxtaposition.

Juxtaposition of two contrasting items is often done deliberately in writing, music, or art β€” in order to highlight their differences.
