Winter Blues

for HaikuHeights Prompt 305, Grey

Months of leaden skies
before the blue reappears
to lift our spirits

    inspiring Haiku!
    grey skys kiss the earth
    yet winter’s gloom is displaced
    with spring’s visiting

    I thought this till I moved to Dubai, now I long to visit in the winter just to escape the pesky heat. Lovely poem, which capture the season succinctly. x

    Sunshine does make such a difference. I think if you grow up with the sun it is harder to be without it. As an Australian I know when I lived in Europe I missed the sunshine we have, even in winter, and the massive expanse of crystal blue skies….having said that, I prefer cold weather to hot but then in Oz, even in winter we get lots of sunshine and blue skies.

    So when you see the blue you stop feeling it? 🙂


  9. Your phrase, “leaden skies,” says it all, Viv. Depressing… except when accompanied by lots of snow, in which case it’s fun. But that darned pewter color, such a downer… Amy
