Day 39 Gentle Kiss — Haibun Journey View From My Window

Outside my window black and naked branches tremble against the cold blue evening sky. My thoughts roam to the carol “In the Bleak Midwinter.” I think of such a precious gift in such hard circumstances. That gift still shines on. As we prepare our hearts for the coming celebrations the savior light still guides us through our dark times.

in a stable harsh
a new born king is stilled
by a maiden’s kiss
