New Year Candlelight

clinking glasses
stars rise in new year champagne
by candlelight

clinking glasses
above the flash of fireworks
a new moon

stars rise in new year champagne
each bursting bubble
a resolution

by candlelight
the old year bids fare thee well
flickering shadows

My response to Carpe Diem #1804 New Beginnings: Candlelight

If you love a challenge, come and create ‘fusion-ku’ with two given haiku and then create troiku with them. The given haiku are from Jane Reichhold’s online Saijiki, A Dictionary of Haiku, section New Year:

a new year
rising from wild seas
a few stars

filling
the glass with candlelight
champagne
