A friend challenged people to write a haiku using the word gloaming. Gloaming is both one of my favourite words and favourite concepts, not to mention a time of day I genuinely enjoy. I also intimately associate it with the very powerful, Christopher Reeves directed movie Into the Gloaming, the title of which I appropriated for use in my haiku.
- soft petals fall, pink
cherry blossoms fade, they’ve gone…
into the gloaming
