High "Thyme" for a Contest - Spring 2011

(You should be warned: I am crazy about bad puns. I'm sorry. I'll try to do better.)

Awaiting Inspiration

Each month Keen Tea Thyme will host a contest. Winners will receive a selection of tea (what else?). Depending on the month, winners may be able to choose which teas they want.

So without further adieu, here's the contest for Spring 2011: Tea Haiku.

Post your tea haiku here and have fun. Winner(s) will receive a selection of tea and/or teaware. **Updated: since the blog was slow to start, I'm changing the contest to every three months. So this is the Spring 2011 contest. Submit through the end of May. Winner(s) will be chosen in June.

To refresh your memory, haiku is comprised of simple 5, 7, 5 beats or syllables per line. For a complete explanation, see what Wikipedia has to say.

Here's an example, written quickly by me:
A fresh brewed cuppa
awaits eager lips for a sip
relaxation time.

Post yours below. If you are having trouble posting, please e-mail me your haiku. Post as many times as you'd like - but a different haiku each time. Make sure to sign your name (web name is fine). Contest runs from March 1 - May 31. We'll start voting for favorites in June, with winners announced at the end of the month.

So brew a cuppa and get crackin'!


  1. I just found your blog! It looks really nice, so I thought I'd drop a haiku on this! :)

    Tea, is always best
    in the morning and at night
    sipping quietly

  2. A cup of green tea
    Spring's warmth on a cold wet day
    gift of the ancients

  3. I've had trouble commenting on here via the name/URL. I've tried a number of times, but it never came through! Let's see if this goes...

    A steaming hot mug,
    Full pot of tea beside me
    Warm serenity

  4. Hey, it worked! :)

  5. A magical cup
    Leaves awaiting the reading
    I'll calmly exhale
