Haiku - Symbolic Coffee Selection

Updated on February 24, 2016

symbolic coffee

start the day creatively

and let the words flow

so many times now

i’ve got out of bed today

in my mind only

skeletal branches

stretching out in confidence

knowing growth will come

angelic beings

shimmering white wings on blue

painting patterned sky

my very best friend

with echoes of warmth and love

you are always there

petal to petal

abundant butterflies flit

hope for the flowers

walking through the mud

blue sky on a winter’s day

worth every minute

breaking through the grey

lining the clouds with silver

exposing the blue

patchy fog lingers

forehead warmth obstructing view

morning spectacles

rain rain go away

childish challenging nature

forced humility

      My fave here: "skeletal branches / stretching out in confidence / knowing growth will come". That is just awesome, my friend.

      Thanks for these beautiful haiku which I really enjoyed reading.

      Have yourself a great week end, my friend.

      Love and peace

      Tony

      Thanks Tony, I really appreciate comments from you. The great thing is that growth has now come and there isn't a better place to be than in the UK right now. 27 degrees, blue skies, long days, fresh green leaves, blossoms, etc. And it is a long weekend! Go well my friend. Russ
