snows drifts higher still
blanketing all:  fields, pines, home–
contented within

    Sounds like my trip along the interstate highway earlier this week. Like this haiku.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      I wrote this when my cold was at its worst. I was so miserable, I couldn’t imagine going outside, despite how magical the landscape. Staying by the fire, wrapped up in a blanket, staring out the window–that was the best I could manage. I left the tissues and sniffling out of the haiku. 😉

    Warmth in the chillness

  4. Susan says:

    Indeed the snow has covered everything. But I still love the beauty of this white blanket.
    Thank you for peeping at Ariel.

  5. Julie says:

    Beautiful. It makes me want to take a nap in front of the fireplace. We don’t get much snow around these here parts, but I learned to appreciate the comfort of a snow day when I lived up north.

  6. souldose says:

    I’d love to see snow, I’ve always though it brings unique quiet and peacefulness… Great Haiku darl.

  7. Sandy says:

    Oh, now, this is a peaceful poem. Nothing is better than being contented.

  8. Madeline says:

    It’s cold where I am, but without enough snow to give the “snowed-in-everybody-just-curl-up-with-cocoa-til-the-thaw” feeling that this lovely haiku evokes. You’ve got me wishing for a huge snowfall! Thank you for such a cozy feeling.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Thank you so much for visiting and sharing a comment. If you really want it, I wash I nice cozy snowfall for you. Glad you enjoyed the haiku. Visit anytime.

  9. Andy Sewina says:

    Hiya, love the line ‘contented within’ it makes me feel like I’m an an igloo – snug!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Andy Sewina,
      Glad you liked the drifting haiku. I think that last line really makes the poem. I’m all about snug these days. Too cold for me. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Stop by any time.

    Phew, we haven’t got any snowdrifts here, but the snow is right across my street. Cool seasonal Haiku!

  11. Lisa at Greenbow says:

    This is the way I perceive winter. Aaahhhhh… time to be in.

  12. Amity says:

    Wish I could see real snow and not just in poems and pictures…:)

    I feel the stillness of your lines Yousei…:) and it’s freezin’ cold in there, is it?

    Have a great week ahead!



    • Yousei Hime says:

      Perhaps you will see the snow sometime. Unless the wind is really blowing, there is always a stillness in a field of snow. And yes, it is very cold. This morning it was about 12 degrees Farenheit. Least week we got below zero. Brrrrrr. You take care.

  13. kseverny says:

    Three weeks of snow.
    i’ve had enough. lol
    cool haiku

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Three weeks! Have mercy! I don’t think we’ve had that much. You are surely entitled to reaching your limit. Glad you liked the haiku. I didn’t leave a message earlier (trying to read through friends blogs while I still had the energy), but I loved the pictures and poem. Thank you for stopping by and for your own posts.

  14. lesliepaints says:

    Oh yes, within. That is where I stay today. 🙂 I like this Yousei. So appropriate.

  15. Technobabe says:

    Might as well relax huh, Mother Nature has way more power than we do so hey, we might as well enjoy the winter show. I mean snow. Hugs.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      I really do love the snow. Growing up in south Texas, we never saw snow. I love the untouched fields and snowy pine branches. I’m ready for a change by mid-February, though. Snow in April, just too weird for this Texas girl.

  16. Jennifer says:

    I like this. I also like your new winter rabbit!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Thanks. The haiku doesn’t reveal it, but I have a cold and am more than happy to stay inside, sniffling and blowing. That new bunny picture turned out well, didn’t it. I really like it too. Hope your holidays were great!
