Southern Winter (Haibun)

image

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. Oh… how I wish to share ‘every’ sunrise with that special someone… When I find a way to do that… they will all be “Audacious Dawns”… Beautiful post, Audrey…

  2. 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™‚

    • *blushing* Dalo!! Thank you… You’re happy, I can tell. Look at you flirting away. Home looks good on you, I’ve noticed. Yeah, maybe it has everything to do with who we experience the sights with. Enjoy those cool temps and wear a sweater…one that brings out the color in your eyes. πŸ™‚

  3. 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...
