Yule Haiku
by Antoinette
Holly and pine cones
Bright light from many candles
Mistletoe berries
The winter solstice
Twisted branches of red and green
Casting light on all
Pale light lingering
Spices in wild profusion
Cups of hypocras
Fire, earth, air, water
Darkness descending on earth
Bittersweet memories
