Haikai Challenge #24 #2 tanka

For Frank’s Haikai Challenge #24

December night sky –
snow like frozen stars silent
as dust falls to earth –
no wishes on these lost stars –
summer photo fades with time

    This made me think of those occasional Christmas eves when nature sets the stage for the celebration. That didn’t happen this year, though. Peaceful.

    There’s a wistfulness in this one, of lost stars and wishes, winter and summer.

    Do lost stars allow for clarified dreams?
    Looking forward to spotting the few constellations I do know.
