winter solstice (First Place, December 2012 Shiki kukai, kigo category)

My haiku for the kigo category in the December Shiki kukai won First Place, my 2nd in this kukai. Here it is:

winter solstice
the widow tightens
her braids

(0,10,9) = 29 pts
**Very picturesque and melancholy

Thanks to all who voted and to the kind poet who made a comment.

In the free format category where Cara’s (Cara Holman) haiku won 2nd place, my haiku

on the prompt ‘departing’ gained only 3 pts. Here it is:

a leaf
races in the wind
after him

Thanks, too, for the votes.
