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
