Carpe Diem #1574 New Year's Eve

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at the first episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai of 2019. This month we will explore the classical and modern kigo for winter. So first HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope 2019 will be a wonderful year full of inspiration and joy.

To start this month with I have chosen for a modern kigo taken from Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku". New Year's Eve ... well needs no explanation I think (smiles).

New Year's Eve
the angel atop the pine
a full moon

New Year's Eve
on the country porch the sound
of a full moon

Here is my response:

Ah! that silence
after New Year's Eve ...
the wind of last year
plays with bare branches
nothing has changed

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until January 7th at noon (CET). Have an awesome New Year's Eve !!
