Saudade

Poetry | Haiku | Portuguese

persian-by hoomarg from Pixabay

Lying on the floor

Cool tiles soothe my aching head

Sweet tea lifts my heart

A feeling of melancholy or sadness mixed with hope is expressed by the Portuguese word Saudade. A similar feeling is expressed by the Japanese word Natsukashii.
