Naviarhaiku121 – Hush descends

This beautiful haiku poem was written by Ian Joyce aka Ikjoyce, a regular participant in Naviar Haiku: it’s part of a series of poems Ian wrote to describe the passage of a day.

In haiku poetry, the juxtaposition of two different images is called Kiru or cutting: by creating a gap in the imagery, the writer invites the readers to interpret the haiku in his/her own way. Here, the final line changes the mood of the poem entirely by shifting from a dark and silent setting (described in the first two lines) to a much brighter motif: dreams.
