#Haiku Happenings #5: Merril’s latest #haibun for #dversepoets and my own current #haikai challenge!
Candles burn, in winter darkness, a miracle of light. The ancient hatred is rising again. Six million and more, but we survive. We clink our glasses lightly, saying not, “Cheers,” but “L’chaim.”
twilight comes early
shadows blanket ground and trees—
light glows in windows
I know I wrote about Hanukkah yesterday, and there will probably be more—but you know, it lasts for eight nights. Tonight will be the third night of Hanukkah. 🙂
