“The New Age of Aquarius,” #haiku

Yay! Frank Tassone’s Haikai challenge is back! I found inspiration in the kigo: 170 – Winter Solstice II/Christmas.

Yuletide blessings flow
from dawn's light thorough Stonehenge
the sun god returns

Pagans around the world celebrate the return of the light as the Wheel of the Year continues to turn. May the darkness of this plague-ridden year be behind us!

Happy Yule, Merry Christmas, & Happy New Year!

  1. I was watching some historical show about the stone works of Europe – Stonehenge one of the younger of these types of monuments. There is still so much to learn about what the ancients left.

    Hope your New Year in your New Home begins a wonderful chapter for you and yours!!

      1. ‘My office’ is the dining room table. Though I do have the option of two other rooms! Both of which have desks that are overflowing with stuff. You’d have thought I’d have had time to organize… but, well just keeping up with keeping up can be it’s own challenge.

        Years ago we got some new wood flooring and painted. My dining room and kitchen walls are still bare! At least though from wear I sit I an see out the bay and the picture windows by just a little head swivel 😉
