New Year

Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #13 New Year’s Eve

“In classical Japan (following the Lunar calender) there was a fifth season ”New Year”, and this season was from approximately 20 December ’til 20 January. I have a few haiku which have been written for this season:”

the Great Morning:
winds of long ago
blow through the pine trees

The Great Morning is the morning of New Year’s Day.

for this New Year’s Day
the sight we gaze upon shall be
Mount Fuji

© Sokan

the first sunrise
there is a cloud
like a cloud in a picture

© Shusai

New Year’s Eve
fireworks enlightens the sky –
bad ghosts flee

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

storm stops raging
sun springs out of sky–brilliance
chance for a new day

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
