Southern Winter (Haibun)


Do you ever have moments where you find yourself wishing, if even for a few brief seconds, you would’ve shared a sunrise like this with someone special?

Me, too.

When an unexplainable dawn leaves me breathless, this is when I need you the most. You could use your words to help me see her beauty, possibly the greatness that could come from today.

Instead, I’ll leave you with this:

A breathless dawning
Winter doesn’t look the same
Take me to the snow

  1. Now that is exactly what dawn should feel like ~ enjoyed hearing your thoughts behind the poem, makes them even more wonderful. The grey morning skies in Seattle, as well as chilly temps, can’t offer anything close to the sights you’re seeing. Sit back and enjoy πŸ™‚


  2. Man, can I relate to this. After 12 years in Brazil, and Christmas during the summer, I still haven’t gotten use to it. I love getting so much sun in my life, but during this season I was some comfy, cozy, snowy, fireplacey type of thing.


Tell Me, Please...
