Solicitude comes
bearing gifts of soup and wine
scents of comfort merge

Apparently Merril writes history and poetry and dances in the kitchen with her cats whilst blogging at Merril D Smith
A beautiful, olfactory haiku. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t help but choose today’s date, given Merril’s phrase “bearing gifts”!
This haiku is part of my CARE series.

    lovely – I don’t get the significance of dates though?

      6th January is Ephinany, the celebration of the wise men bringing gifts to the baby Jesus. As Merril used the phrase “bearing gifts” I decided to link the haiku with the Christian Calendar!

    Thanks so much, Freya!
    I wouldn’t have thought of the date and it’s association. 🙂
