per amica silentia lunae

or, across the ferny brae with the evil voodoo celt

Writer's Block: Long Nights, Short Poems
solstice
evcelt
It's the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere, summer solstice in the Southern hemisphere, and Haiku Day in the U.S. Does that inspire you to write a three-line poem with five syllables in the first and last lines and seven in the middle line?


On this shortest day,
The sun rises in my heart-
Love conquers the dark.

Urge to write haiku
Comes to me on many days
Not just on solstice

Winter solstice means
It is extactly 6 months
Until my birthday :)

Darkness is a cloak.
The land rests sleeping, dormant
Waiting for new light.
