“Yuletide,” #cinquain

Merry Christmas! This week for my Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge, I asked everyone to contribute a cinquain so I could create a huge garland of cinquain to wrap around our “poet-tree.”

I wrote this cinquain for the Winter Solstice, but totally forgot to post it! Better late than never!

Yuletide—
the longest night
of celestial darkness
brings us the return of sunshine 
balanced
