Haiku Friday: Dark

9781881849292.mainToday my haiku is from my new book A Haiku Book of Days for Spiritual Seekers, Dreamers, and Other Lovers of Magic & Mystery. You can now purchase this book on Amazon here.

The haiku topic for today is “Dark”:

December 19
you would never know
covered by a cloak of dark
the Light is coming

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

sit still in the Dark

remember what you have learned

Light is born tonight
