Caribbean Kigo Kukai #31

It’s always fun to see the results of the Caribbean Kigo Kukai, and to find out who wrote what. Kind of like the unmasking at a masquerade ball, not that I’ve actually been to one. The kigo this month was “footsteps”. My haiku:

footsteps receding
in the distance
morning solitude

It netted 6 pts, and the following (anonymous) comment: ” I like the way the poet has adapted the familiar ‘winter solitude’ kigo to the theme of the kukai.” Read all the haiku from this kukai here.
