After the Solstice #tanka

Beachy-sunset

After the Solstice

Cold wind on the sand
Early sunset lights water
Ice under surface
As land sleeps through the season
The sea celebrates winter

Written for Colleen’s WeeklyPoetry Challenge #tankatuesday.  This week is poet’s choice for key words.  I decided to do a tanka.

          I just checked – Sunset on Cape Cod on Christmas is 4:15, so the sun is pretty low at 3:30 in late December… It was actually someplace between 3:30 and 4, but still early! But then, we have those long summer days to make up for it :)
