Syracuse Poster Project Banner

Nicholas Petrone


Children sleep soundly
in warm winter pajamasó
snowman guards their dreams.

The imagery for this poem came from my own experience with Syracuse winters, and I wrote the haiku one evening after a big snowstorm. My children had been playing all day in the wind and the snow, and after I put them to bed I sat down and wrote this poem.

Iíve submitted haiku several times before, and Iíve supported the Syracuse Poster Project for a few years now. In fact, during ďArt on the Porches,Ē the Poster Project sells posters from my porch. I love the idea of art students coming together with other people from the community. There are a lot of talented people in Syracuse, and I think itís great that we can collaborate and produce something that shows pride in our city.
