Happy New Year’s Eve 2020 俳句

Happy New Year’s Eve!
The best year ….. EVER ….. AWAITS!
Happy New ……. DECADE!

“And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done, full of tasks, claims, and demands; and let us see that we learn to take it without letting fall too much of what it has to bestow upon those who demand of it necessary, serious, and great things.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke, 1892-1910

Hiatus 俳句

soft aurora naps
interim novae reflect
inkwell at low tide

Taking time off until the New Year!
May the holidays be magical for everyone!

Remembrance Day red
lest we forget fallen hearts
silent gratitude

fateful quietude
our shared moment of silence
always remember


In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
