This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that states or references New Year’s eve/day, the New year or any variation on the theme.

As always:

Here’s how the challenge works:

1. write the haikai poem of your choice.
2. post the link of your post to Mister Linky.
3. pingback by posting the link to the challenge on your site.
4. read and comment on other contributors’ posts.

(Note: Mister Linky may appear as a small rectangle icon, due to some incompatibility between Blenza and WP’s Gutenberg Editor. Click the icon, and Mister Linky opens as normal)

Have a happy, healthy and safe new year, haijin! See you in 2019!
