For Frank Tassone’s haikai challenge. Lots of moons.
in the shallows
of the sky clouds shoal
a beam of silver
in the half-light
between bright day and dark night
caught in waving
tree fronds framing a sky pool
in a silver pool
of tree-kelp swims the moon
as sturgeon fish

That closing haiku is a perfect closing.
Did I just type that?! I meant to say the last haiku is a perfect closing. Oh, well.
I know what you meant, and you meant what you said, we’re just beaten over the head with the ‘don’t repeat’ rule that is totally arbitrary anyway.
Thank you! And what better compliment could there be 🙂
A beautiful and gentle progression of haiku 😣
Thank you, Willow 🙂
Oh that last one is perfect. Like Ken said. (K)

If your clouds are anything like ours, you’ll see what I meant 🙂
Thats right. The clouds are the same. 😉
That’s a nice thought 🙂
The moon is a companion, yet it seems so foreign sometimes. No wonder we try to put a face, literally, on it. This celebration of the moon keeps it mystic and familiar. For some, I guess, the mystic is familiar.
The moon does have a face. I see the same expression every full moon.
Wonderful concept and imagery.
Thank you! the sky really looked like the ocean.
