first haiku since middle school


winter in colorado

amidst days of freeze
golden warmth strongly breaks through
reminding of Hope

At (in)courage (great site!) we have been challenged to stretch our creative wings a little with a monthly artistic challenge. Since I would classify myself as artistically challenged--this must be for me! :0)

This month's challenge was to write a haiku set in winter. So I did. It took 5 minutes. (it's true, but I mention this only as a disclaimer to protect my artistically challenged ego--just sayin').

I'd love to have you join in the challenge! Head over to (in)courage and link up, or post a haiku here in my comments. If I can do it, you can too.

Dawn, I'm here to tell you, you only need five minutes! Yes--the HOPE we have in God warms even the most frozen heart.

Well done, friend...and THANKS for joining in!! :)

Now this hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (Romans 5:5)

What true and beautiful words you wrote!

Good job, Dawn! I'm going to try it too -- never wrote one before! I think my hands are starting to sweat...but your assurance that it took only 5 minutes is helping!

I would love some of that golden warmth here in Iowa-- it is exactly what my winter-bound soul needs! :)
