#Haikai Challenge #117: Midwinter (mafuyu)

Image result for black sky snow


Dark’s pendulum swings
heavy, to its furthest reach –
dawn a memory

Midwinter night, Luna’s lost
Clouds sputter confused snow

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senyru, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga) that alludes to either midwinter (mafayu), midsummer (manastu), or the winter/summer solstice.

  1. Ah, confused snow… or just plain confused weather. We headed south for a few days… and brought wind and rain with us. Looking forward to some sun. The wind is still making the palms sway, maybe in confusion 😉
