Monday Morning #Haiku 190 — Daphne

February walk
A winter treat breaks the grey
Daphne clothed in pink

    1. Thanks. I’m glad you liked it 🙂
      Uneard of warm temperatures, I hope, rather than unheard of cold ones. The weather seems very erratic and unpredictable these days. I remember a time when there were definite seasons that behaved as they should!

      1. I hate humidity. It makes me feel as if I’m wearing lead boots and breathing in air like soup. In the UK, I don’t think we get as much sunshine and blue skies as we used to, whatever time of the year it is. It’s very depressing and tiring. I turned my computer desk around this winter, so I couldn’t look out of the window at the grey. Instead, I look at an apple-green wall that’s very calming and uplifting (and take my 10 micrograms of Vit D daily!

  1. I embrace any signs of spring. We are locked in ice this morning. The animals are not pleased at all. 🙂 But hope “springs” eternal, my friend, and soon we will frolic under the dappled sunshine.

    Have a tremendous week of creativity.

    1. I think the animals, birds, and plants are being lulled into a false sense of security where I live. I’ve seen two dead foxes in the last two days D:. I don’t know what that means. There was also a spaced-out toad sitting in a gutter this morning. I took a photo of him. He’ll probably be the subject of next week’s haiku! I think he’ll make a better subject than dead foxes.
      Oh, to frolic under the dappled sunshine! That being said, I did spend Saturday afternoon gardening in the sunshine, although still dressed in winter clothes.

      I’ve done five hours of writing today, so that’s a good start to the week.

      Wishing you all the best in creativity this week, my friend 🙂


  2. Lucky you…. it’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow which will get rid of a lot of the white stuff… but let’s face it. It’s only February 19…. I ain’t gonna delude myself!
    Lovely image and Haiku, my friend.

    1. It’s very grey today, with intermittent rain. But I can see in my garden, the yellow petals of a daffodil about to unfold and reveal themselves in all their glory!
      I’m glad you loved my photo and haiku 🙂
