On the Fifth Morning…

Today, being a quiet and rather lazy kind of Sunday, I found the “Special” haiku challenge from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai quite delightful for the imagination.

The goal is to write a new haiku in the same tone, sense and spirit as the haiku by *Alexey Andreyev.

morning awakening:
among window curtains’ flowers
a blade of gray sky*

Perhaps the awakening comes with the pain of reality when one notices a change in a love relationship.  A lover draws away, affections growing elsewhere and what is left…only memories to start again anew.

truth dawning brightly
as the melting snow reveals
secret rendezvous

It’s the last week in January, can you believe it?

January is also National Soup Month in the United States…I’m thinking a nice hot bowl of French Onion Soup sounds good right about now.

How about you?

What’s your favorite bowl of soup? 😛
