Written for:  Carpe Diem #1574 – New Year’s Eve – modern kigo  from Jane Reichhold’s, “A Dictionary of Haiku”

at the end of the road
a New Year’s party

New Year’s Eve
the angel atop the pine
a full moon

New Year’s Eve
on the country porch the sound
of a full moon

“Here is my response:”

Ah! that silence
after New Year’s Eve …
the wind of last year
plays with bare branches
nothing has changed

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

expectations soar
what changes will take place
in a brand new year


About purplepeninportland

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.
