Black Forest

white snow fades to grey
night smothers remains of day
in black forest pines

My response to Carpe Diem #1596 Black Forest

In the final episode of January 2019, in which we have explored classical and modern kigo (season words) for winter, we I have a modern kigo taken from Jane Reichhold’s Dictionary of Haiku: ‘Black Forest’.  The challenge is to create a ‘fusion-ku’ with two haiku by Jane Reichhold:

black forest
night extinguishes
the snow

sun and snow
still in the pines
the black forest
