Delight in Company

by candlelight
the profile of her face
radiant with smiles

My response to Carpe Diem #1588 delight in company

This month we are exploring classical and modern kigo (seasonwords) for winter and today we have a modern kigo, which has been taken from Jane Reichhold’s Saijiki, A Dictionary of Haiku:  ‘delight in company’.

As insipiration, we have been given examples of haiku in which Jane Reichhold uses this modern kigo:

a new winter friend
up the year’s steep sloping
our flow of words

bird song
under winter quilts
bodies touching

curved ink
the warmth of your hand
in the letters

Jane Reichhold
