new year haiku

stray chatter
across ragged twilight

laughter in the new year
night open
last tinkling balcony

My good friend (and good poet) Andrew Burke suggested on the Poetryetc list yesterday that somewhere deep in the recesses of his memory he'd heard that there was a tradition of writing a 'positive' haiku on the first day of the year. Check his site as he's been practising, as I have above.
