This is a haibun for FFFC #98 and Frank J. Tassone’s haikai challenge about the New Year / Cold Moon. I tried to come up with a good title, but they were all either too silly or too sad. I don’t want to make the reader sad right from the get-go. 😉
She lies awake, waiting for the ball to drop in Times Square, for the new year to be ushered in with customary fanfare — or what passes for fanfare (or custom) in these strange times. Times Square is empty, people in their homes, hoping for a fuller year ahead.

Happy New Year. 2021 tiptoes forward. I am welcoming it with open arms.
Gorgeous, well done! Happy New Year to you ❤
You make haibun look easy and interesting. I think I will try it in the New Year what an inspiration. Thanks.

happy new years~
We’re all howling…hopefully it chases the goblins away. Happy New Year! (K)

It didn’t sound sad to me Frank. If more people shut up and listened to the wolves beneath the moon we’d be in a better place.
Such a poignant haibun that perfectly illustrates the year 2020! Happy New Year. May this year indeed be fuller for us all. ❤
