Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today it's December 21st and it's the day on which winter starts on the Northern Hemisphere. So I thought this was the opportunity to bring this prompt winter solstice ... I remember that we had 'winter solstice' for prompt back in 2013 June, because in that month we had all haiku written by Jane Reichhold whom was our featured haiku poet than. And today we have her modern kigo "winter solstice" for prompt, what a coincidence don't you think so too?
There were wonderful haiku inspired on that haiku than and I hope this time to read again wonderful haiku inspired on 'winter solstice' ...
the white night alone
with rolling surf
the sun in the south
with old folks
warmth of friends
return the sun

And here is my attempt to write an all new haiku on winter solstice.
the longest night
bright stars sparkle through the clouds -
I had to stay in the Christmas feeling ...
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until December 23rd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, our fourth haiku by Richard Wright, later on. For now ... have fun!
