Winter Stars

winter sky pulsates
silent dance of silver stars

My response to Carpe Diem #1065 stars

Chèvrefeuille has reminded us that the tribute to Jane month is almost at an end and that In this last week of September we have only one season to go, winter. However, the prompt for today is not exclusively for winter, although the air is thin and bright then so we can see the stars better than in the other seasons. Today our prompt is stars and these are the haiku which Jane Reichhold created as examples for this modern kigo for winter:

the dust of stars’
shining radiance

a few flakes
still falling

soul bathing
in hot springs
desert stars

cold stars
dropping into the ocean

before one star
beams from the lighthouse
search the sky

into the sky
notes from the harp
light stars
