Flooded by the Moon

flooded by the moon
the village is suspended
in a misty globe

My response to Carpe Diem Special #223 Candy’s 3rd “silvery moonbeams”

In the third CD-Special for this month, Chèvrefeuille shares haiku by the winner of the ‘tribute to Jane’ kukai, Candy of Rhymes With Bug, and one of his own:

silvery moonbeams
reflected in still water
diamonds on the pond

a child humbly born
amid wars and poverty
our hope for peace

blossoms long spent
only brown pods remain
a feast for finches

silver jewels
on flamboyant green spikes
frosted grass

the old pond
surrounded with yellow roses –
rippling water

  1. All the haiku and tanka I stumbled upon on your site are excellent, I will take the time more often to rumble your posts! Keep up the nice work, Imelda Senn
