    Very evocative…my mood is improving right now, inhaling those flower notes. :-)

    Wonderful haiku. We rely so much on nature for our sustenance, and nothing beats some fine loose tea, hot water, lemon or milk, to connect us again with ourselves and life.

    Thank you so much, Alan & Alison! Perfect timing to publish on a Monday :)

    Mmm Dawn
    A refreshing poetic image you have re-created for us.
    I like the musical connection between the "blues" and the "notes". But that set me wondering whether there is also a deliberate juxtaposition between spring and a "blue mood". Perhaps an omen being read in the tea leaves?
    What a lovely topic to gossip about over tea!

    An unusual pairing of spring and blues, Dawn, hinting at sadness, despite new beginnings…but then all is put right with a cup of tea! Lovely.

    Thanks, Marion & Strider. Sometimes when there is a time of new beginnings..there are people that don't always cooperate:)

    I know the feeling; a cup will fill you with cheer or chi…

    sipping longjing tea
    the warmth of mother’s soup with lokshen*

    *Yiddish for noodles but the sound fills me with layers of happiness
