winter solstice
the teenagers make a vow
for now

(Jumping the gun by a few days, I know. In spite of the kigo, this feels more like senryu to me. Maybe it's haikyu or senryku.)

I agree, who cares which category it technically falls into. If it speaks an element of truth, it works. Having worked with teens for years, I think this poem (whatever it is) works. Nicely done!
