Dawn thoughts – (Haiku Morning) July 18, 2014


clouded moonlight
shimmering mystery
bat streaks past


red moon glows
over the sleeping city
early riser

moon watching
over the cranes,
soothing vision

I’m linking this set of full moon haiku to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai dedicated to Shiki but also to the moon.

Here are the wonderful poems that greeted me this morning as I read Chèvrefeuille’s post:

just a peel of light
this New Year’s colored moon –
fireworks at sea

in the pale light
of the full worm month (*)
sheep sleep

lying on the beach
with the one I love –
full moon of summer

behind her veil
she, the full harvest moon (*), hides
her pretty face

fresh fallen snow
reflects the beauty of the moon –
the scent of Christmas

  1. What a treat..my first post to read today!!! I love them all especially the second one…whimsical…i followed an almost fill moon on my overnight bus ride last week…thanks for song all these haiku….


    • I love a clear evening when one can really see the moon … how lovely to have followed the moon on your trip …this morning of course it wasn’t full … but it was splendid just the same. Happy you found my haiku a nice waking up treat!
