Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

on January 12, 2015

New day sky pink tinged
Gives promise of thaw – Oh joy!
Sidewalks free of ice.

  1. Free ice!!!! Love it. 🙂

    i edit comments whenever possible. I make mistakes all the time. Thanks. You could have said ice-free and so could I.

  4. Love it , but I think deeply and the pink tinge to me was the ingredient to melt the ice in the soul , I know , I am far too deep and always think there is something to discover in words and never just see what is in front of me, honestly I never just see a tree , the tree is a symbol of so many things in my over active mind . Wishing you happy days Kathy.

      Kathy, I love what you say about the pink tinged sky melting the soul. That is the beauty of haiku. In only a few words there is space for readers to take the words wherever they want to and find meanings of their own. This is rich. Happy pink-tinged skies to you. 🙂

  5. The last line is great! I hope spring comes quickly 🙂

  6. You’ve captured that feeling of joy in just a few lines, lovely 🙂
