Jade Li’s entry for my #Haikai Challenge #172 (1/3/21): first sun (hatsuhi) — winter vacuum, a tanka

#Haiku Happenings #1 (1/12/20): Jade Li’s latest #tanka for my current #Haikai Challenge!

HubbleSite: Image - Simulation of Black Hole Flare

Winter Vacuum, a Tanka

Finding this morning
a hole where first sun should be,
vacuum sucking light;
stranded gold, streaming from earth,
as my slack face funnels tears.

Image is from the HubbleSite.

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:
A double-header! Two distinct challenges in one week! The first, a traditional New Year kigo, celebrating the arrival of the New Year’s first daylight. The second, a testament to the life-blood of any free people: a system in which the people decide who shall lead them.

This week, let us honor the traditional and unconventional. Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senyru, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either first sun (hatsuhi) or Democracy!
