Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille March 2nd 2016 “moonlight”


Dear friends of MLMM,

This week at  “Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille”. I love to challenge you to write a haiku inspired on a so called “kigo” or “seasonword”. In the classic way of writing haiku the haiku poet had to use a kigo to give the reader an idea in which season the haiku was written.
This week that “kigo” is …  moonlight.
In classical (and modern) Japan they say that the moon of autumn is the most beautiful, but … in my region of the world (Europe) however the Winter moon is the most beautiful too.

Here is a cascading haiku about moonlight:

reflecting sunlight
our natural satellite –
dark of its own

dark of its own
the moon catches beams of sunlight
sharing them with us

sharing them with us
her wonderful smile
autumn moonlight

Hope to see a lot of haiku on moonlight. Be inspired and share your creativity.
