For the last issue on our old publication schedule, let's celebrate with haiga on the topic of Sun. For our readers in the southern hemisphere, December means Summer, but here in the north it's the Winter Solstice and the beginning of the Sun's return.

Explore the saijiki and you'll find sun references spanning the seasons, always with the emotional resonance that is a good kigo's contribution to haiku: winter sunset, New Year's sunrise, spring sunshine, scorching/blazing sun, sunbathing, sunglasses in Summer. . . Then there are the kigo that imply the Sun without actually depicting it: spring warmth, cool shade, long night, winter shadows. Enjoy and be inspired by all the ways these authors and artists have found to evoke the presence of our nearest star.
