Blue - Haiku

Updated on November 15, 2018
Senoritaa profile image

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.

Background

This Haiku is about that moment during the frozen winter, when you are surrounded by room heating yet you feel a chill within yourself, which turns you blue, much like how your finger nails turn blue in wind chills.

Haiku

Frost bite sets within

Fake warmth outside misty glass

Heart and nails turn blue
