Hiku For Carpe Diem Special #49, Jane Reichhold’s “Winter Solstice”

Carpe Diem has today provided two of Jane Reichold’s haiku as prompts.

winter solstice
warmth of friends
return the sun

deep snow
the horse walks the paths
of summer

The aim of the special is to write haiku in same sense, tone and Spirit as Jane Reichhold’s.

longest night
friends around the hearth
warming hearts

across windswept beach
sand crabs scurrying where once
summer’s lobsters lay

Smiles, love and laughter

    You’ve definitely kept the spirit of J.Reichhold’s haiku in yours, JRB. The first one really is is a heartfelt beauty 🙂

    I love #2…but #1 does capture the gathering around the hearth when coming inside on a frosty night…brings to mind the smell of drying wool mittens an scarves … their own aroma of warmth.
