A teabag wrapper haiku


I’ve been drinking tea lately, as I wean myself off of a long-term coffee habit. And when I drink tea at work, I undo the tea envelope so as to leave the paper intact. And today, I took the white space and the baseball on my coffee-turned-tea mug as a form of inspiration.

I really enjoy the challenge of writing haiku. The 5/7/5 structure forces decisions to be made. It’s like the 140 character limit on Twitter, but with syllables.

After a bit of tinkering, I had succeeded in filling the space and giving myself some hope for the arrival of Spring. And that’s not such a bad accoutrement to go with a hot mug of tea, either.

The text of the haiku reads as follows:

The snow is melting
Winter could be over soon
Is Spring almost here?
