Frosty Eyes

 

winter starts

to blink this sleepy solstice

from frosty eyes

 

from frosty eyes

a silver squirrel sees new year

blink a little

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #631, winter solstice, candles, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

  1. Oh! Two treats from Blake today! 🙂
    In the second, it’s as if you’re inviting *us* to blink a little, let the veil dissolve a bit and imagine — and is the squirrel blinking, or is the new year blinking when we do so? Very nicely done. And such wonderful play with “winter starts”, too —!
