Leap – A Quadrille

img_7495-559517633.jpg

By the fire, I watch flames leap around logs.
Before long, I am removed from surrounding antics
I find myself focused as I come to terms
with the passing of another year.
It feels different –
That cloak of darkness is absent.
I am grateful.

Inspired by:

Carpe Diem #888 Hatsuhikari (first light of the sun)

This month at Carpe Diem Haiku we’re working on kigo ( season) words. That is, words that in this form of poetry is referring to the time of year.
In this episode the words are the ” first light of the sun”, which is kigo for winter.

winter morning
first light of the sun … so fragile
reflects in the snow

For OctPoWriMo

I wasn’t planning on doing OctPoWriMo – (October Poetry Writing Month) but fate intervened. One of the prompt words or phrase was – New Beginnings. The above haiku was not written with this challenge in mind! And so it goes. Such happenings are getting more frequent in my day to day. It doesn’t freak me out anymore, I just go with the flow.
