Haiku sequence for the pink moon

For Frank Tassone’s weekly haikai prompt, pink moon


So many blossom-

faces blush the moon

cherry pink



or reflection—millions

of pink petals


what light falls

soft as blossom colour of

rose petals



cherry-round rosy as

the moon

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.

  1. Thanks Dwight, the blossom was lovely. No, I meant ‘what’. I don’t punctuate haiku. I read somewhere that’s how you do it. It does mean there’s a certain ambiguity 🙂
