pale blue winter sky –
solstice sun blazes its last –
lonely crow caws

    Such simple, clear beauty as in the opening line is why haiku was invented in the first place — an instant cup of soothing washes down my throat when I read it. It’s really all we need, when you think about it — simplicity and a light touch of color.

      Thank you Shawna. I agree. It seems open link time has become post a long add poem time. But this haiku was how my Christmas morning was when I took my walk this morning

    You had a wonderful walk, Toni. The beginning of wintertime is one of Mother Nature’s top showings.

    The sound of the crow is so fitting for a day close to solstice.

    I love the sound of the lonely crow, Toni, and I’m glad you have a pale blue winter sky and some solstice sun – we are just grey here.

    With the temperature in South Australia approaching 40 degrees C (104 deg F) it is hard to write much about the winter here at the moment!

    Lovely Toni – and perfect – the breath inhaled, held for a pause, and exhaled.

    A quiet reflection befitting the day and holiday season.

    All the best for the holidays to you and I hope you are recovering well from your nasty fall. May you be safe and well and I hope the new year brings nothing but the best of your heart’s wishes.

    The image of the crow is so befitting near the winter solstice 😊
