Cold moon: haiku

We are at the threshold of the new lunar cycle for December—some of its names are ‘Cold Moon’, ‘Long Night Moon’, ‘Moon before Yule’. I wrote a few haiku to mark the occasion:

New Moon

sparks of excitement

in winter air


New Cold Moon

the last lunar cycle

before his birth


Cold Moon

the steady hum

of the furnace


Cold Moon

now autumn is buried

we wait for spring
