a cherita haibun: lamplight

We shiver awake in late autumn

As the sun sleeps

we make breakfast and tea

Until the sky brightens

with solar glow

to light our way.

more dark than light

in this somnolent time

my lamp flickers



Note: I have combined a cherita with a haiku to create a “cherita haibun” for Carpe Diem #1544 which features “autumn lamplight” a kigo (season word) for Japanese haiku.
