A winter hokku by Kiūkoku:
Chomping and chomping straw;
A snowy night.
The loud chomping noises only emphasize the stillness of the night of snow, so we can say this is a hokku with harmony of contrast — two very different things put together that nonetheless come out as harmonious instead of discordant.
Best wishes to everyone on this New Year’s Eve for a far better and happier coming year than the last has been.
