I am joining Elisabeth from The Dirigible Plum in writing a Haiku-A-Day during the month of December.
Haiku-A-Day December #12: Christmas Lights
Several few evenings ago, following a violin lesson, my daughter and I took an unplanned detour. We ended up exploring a nearby neighborhood decked out in lights. As December is the darkest month of the year - full of early sunsets - I am grateful for the joy that a simple string of Christmas tree lights brings to me and my tween daughter.
We crave the extra light during December.
In response, I wrote this Haiku:
Long December nights,
diminished sunlight, but joy
strings through beams of light.
