The Darkness Settles Like Snow

An Arctic Winter Haiku

Tundra peaks sunset

Three months, darkness is silence

Ice winds wrap wild rock


We’re about almost halfway through November and there’s only about 3 hours of daylight left. The sun is calling it quits earlier and earlier, and the snow is filling in it’s absence. There’s a peace to it.
