Season’s Cloth

Old year put to sleep
under a green-white brocade —
dreaming forevermore.

Winter’s dark blanket awaits
Light germinates a New Year



Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haiki Challenge.  Frank says:
This week, write the #haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga) that alludes to the New Year (Shinnen), be it New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, the new year in general, etc.
