Morning Haiku and Waka – January 11, 2016

Persimmon Dawn

misty fields
in uncertain light
a bare tree stands

[through the fog]
sparrows and persimmons
meet in the first light

mixed with snowflakes
so pale and enchanting
silver light

in the icy mist
the voyager departed
into first light
the trains crossed clacking loudly
leaving deafening silence

Carpe Diem #894 First Light

Here are a few of the examples which Jane gives for first light:

first light
nudging frozen clouds
snow flakes

milky dawn
the world without color
takes form

spots of blue
varying the light to fit
tracks in the snow

and by Chèvrefeuille:

winter morning
the fragile light of the sun
reflects in the snow

a cold moonlit night
just the sound of fresh fallen snow –
wandering over the moors

© Chèvrefeuille

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
