Haiku sequence for the Sturgeon moon

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

moon rises

 

caught in waving

tree fronds framing a sky pool

the moon

 

in a silver pool

of tree-kelp swims the moon

as sturgeon fish

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.
