twilight

Carpe Diem #1060 twilight


twilight
creeping across the valley
on firefly wings

Here are the haiku by Jane which she uses as an example for this modern kigo "twilight":

darkness slipping in
water that cannot be still
twilight

nautical twilight
the sea gives its last light
to the sky

twilight
among early stars
sea bird's cry
