blue winter morning
filled with white flakes–both hands ’round
cup of hot coffee

  9. Flor Gurner says:

    I don’t ever get to experience a snowy cold winter day, but you make it sound lovely.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Flor Gurner,
      I didn’t get much snow at all growing up, but I did get cold weather. I’d have to say that this year I’ve had more than enough snow. I think we’ve had bit of snow every day this week. 😦 I shouldn’t complain. Snowfall is really beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    Oh, I’ve always thought of winter mornings as white or gray, but now I like calling them blue. Nice perspective, love the haiku! Congrats on the award, too! 😀

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Hi Tacy,
      I think winter has a lot more color to it than people give it credit for. I notice green, even in winter, because we are surrounded by pines. My favorite winter color is the lavender and blue you can seen early in the morning or just before sunset. Glad you liked the haiku. Have a great weekend. 🙂

    Awesome award for an awesome poetess!!! Congratulations.
    I like the double blue in the haiku: Blue winter morning and blue hands. Yes, good description. You reel us back in to the warmth with the hot coffee!! One of my favorite things. I so like this haiku. With the white stuff still overflowing here and so much cold it warms my innards to read your lovely work.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Howdy. What a lovely comment. You warmed me right back. Did you visit the Word of the Month site and read the poems? There are some lovely ones. Stopping by your place later.

  20. souldose says:

    Now I miss my coffee days… I’m going to check your nominee because I trust your judgement

  21. Jingle says:

    I see hot coffee with fresh smell plus thite snow outside your door,
    what comparison and contrast mental images from your post.

    beautiful Haiku!

  22. lesliepaints says:

    Absolutely wonderful haiku. You made that moment in winter so much more complete by writing it down.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Good day to you, my friend. Glad you liked the coffee haiku. I love that first sip of coffee on a cold morning. Did you read the faerie poem? I based it on a garden we used to have.

  23. Lisa at Greenbow says:

    I like the idea of a hot cuppa on a cold winter morning.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      I drink twice the amount of coffee in winter that I do in summer (2 or 3 cups instead of 1). I started to write it so the reader knew it was flavored or chocolate flavored coffee. Then I thought, “Maybe the reader won’t like chocolate coffee . . . .” So it stayed universal. Of course, some people don’t even drink coffee but they’ll understand the idea of holding something warm, inviting, and comforting. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
