Haiku challenge: Hunter & Moon

For Ronovan’s haiku challenge

Red-brushed hunter slinks,

moonlight gleams in a bright eye—

blackbird never sleeps.

 

The moon’s a huntress,

she seeks out sleepless lovers,

traps them in her nets.

 

Hunter on the hill,

outlined in moonlight, waiting—

wild things hold their breath.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
