Poems--By Jan Allison--United Kingdom

tiny snow angel
snowflakes kiss your rosy cheeks
white winter beauty

emerald green growth
dresses the rocks and pebbles
natural velvet

dainty daffodil
your golden trumpet fanfares
the dawning of spring

Jan Allison is a relative newcomer to poetry. She didn’t start writing poetry until her husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent surgery at the end of 2013. She wrote her first poem ‘Splendid Isolation’ whilst he was in hospital. Since then has discovered a love of poetry and has written over 500 poems. Jan also wrote collaboratively with her writing partner Darren Watson under the name Jadazzle United.


  1. Jan you definitely are a testament to the healing process in writing. Your Haiku is the original form and very accurate on measure and count. The imagery and flow is perfection! Good to read you, my friend. If I haven't already welcomed you to Whispers, I welcome you now! Sheri

  2. Jan,
    Some lovely haiku you have penned here. I am not sure if you are new to Whispers or not, so if you are, Welcome!
    Your new friend,
    David Fox
