Day 50 Before the Solstice — Haibun Journey View From My Window

From my window, the bright sun looms above the trees. Oh, that brilliant white sun so blinding on an otherwise colorless day. Your surface temperature is 5,778 Kelvin or almost 10,000 degrees fahrenheit. Still today you appear so cold I shiver in your presence. This almost shortest day of the year, not to be warmed.

under the winter sun
turning my collar to the cold
I hurry home


winter sun
rays barely reach
my heart
