Of ‘hyggekrog’ dreams…

Angela Topping’s highly enjoyable hygge series focusses on the many aspects of this Danish word that loosely describes how simple pleasures in life can make us feel good.
The writer explained in one post that the associated noun hyggekrog defines a place that embodies cosiness. She said it was like a small nook where one can feel safe. Maybe a window seat or a cosy reading corner, an inglenook fireplace or a small room. It’s a burrow for humans, and may go back as an instinct to our cave-dwelling days where ancient humans were safe from wild beasts.

My haiga is featured today in Angela’s series with poetry from Johanna Boal and Brian Johnstone.  The haiga, or more specifically photo haiku, was inspired by such a place , having been composed while curled up in an armchair contemplating a crackling fire. To use the adjective associated with hygge – it could be described as a hyggelig haiga!

Now, why don’t you pull up a chair and join me by the fire. 🙂

    Our camper van is hyggekrog – I can provide a photo of her if you write the haiku!

    Because we know each other’s names from writing renku sessions provided by The Haiku Foundation’s Renku, I wanted to know more about you. Today, I found this very original haiga: snowed in . . . / the warmth / of a rainbow. How brilliant!
