Winter Morning Haiku

Peaceful winter morn
Dressed in snow – the only sound:
Soft moan of the sea.

I wish this was the view from our yard today, but no. This snap was taken last winter when we had snow. Positively springlike all weekend!

Early Rise

001Waking up too soon
dreams dissolve, sleep elusive,
I rub my tired eyes

006But then my heart smiles
a new day, a new chance – Life’s
consolation prize.

Do you ever wake up too early?
Or do you like to start every morning at daybreak?

Happy Place Haiku

Under a blue sky
a soft breeze while the sun sets;
quintessence of peace
