“The Wraith,” A #Haiku
Welcome to my contribution to my Weekly Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of “shadow & light.” I used “wraith” for shadow, and used “wispy” for light.

A wispy presence –
with the pale form of a Wraith,
the moon hides the sun.

I celebrated the eclipse on Monday by trying to capture the sun (We were at 90%) without looking at it directly. We did get a temperature drop of about six degrees. The light resembled a brown-out like someone had dimmed the lights.
I performed a creativity ritual calling upon the energy from the eclipse to infuse me with new opportunities. I recharged my calcite fairy stone in the sun and shadows.
