under snow blanket
rhododendron leaves folded
like hands in prayer

question: does "prayer" have one or two syllables?

mompoet - thinking in haiku it must be two

I really like it!! Down here, "prayer" can even have 3 syllables - :)

No idea about the syllables bit, but the Haiku is warm and hopeful notwithstanding the pure-white, but bitter-cold snow.

Two syllables for me and love the image and comparison.
