Haiku Poem – 吹雪

bushy white
rolling snow abounds
icy bite

(Ben first version)
北極の氷雪積もる朝の庭
ほっきょく の ひょうせつ つもる あさ の にわ

(Michiko version)
宙を舞う白い竜巻積もる雪
ちゅう を まう しろい たつまき つもる ゆき

In Iowa, there is so much snow that everywhere looks white. Recently, there have been three blizzards. As a result, almost a half meter of snow has accumulated. It has also become really cold. For example, the temperature now is nine degrees below zero (in Celsius). Due to the snow and the ice, no one wants to go outside.

 アイオワ州では、あちこちにたくさん雪が降ったので、あたり一面真っ白です。最近、三回、吹雪になりました。その結果、五十センチぐらい雪が積もりました。また、非常に寒くなりました。例えば、今、温度は零下9度です。雪と氷の為、誰も外に出たくありません。
