‘Cold Dawn’ — Haibun (for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai)

That was the year
that was —
I present it to the flames
of purification,
scrying the images
for sign and portent
of brave futures unknown.
Outside, nature’s nudity
tears at my soul,
this cold dawn of realisation,
the privation of my heart, lost
somewhere between the sky,
that vast horizon
where a glacial sun greets,
sole testament to the day.

Last year’s summation
I’m sifting wheat from the chaff
Using discernment

***Great post. 1970 was such a memorable year for me and the world. So called ‘pop music’ never seemed so good. The sexy 60s were over and the cynical 70s had begun. There were still ‘properly’ constructed songs around then, a lot of quality amid the not so good. Dawn had a way of making great hits.
