day moon ~
no shadow on
Published: Blithe Spirit 31.3 2021
A haiku or a senryu? I love this poem very much, and I’m so grateful to Caroline Skanne, the editor of Blithe Spirit, for choosing it for publication.
I have always been fascinated with seeing a “day moon.” I’ve always considered it a sign or good luck or something fortunate happening or about to happen. Do you have any thoughts about seeing the moon out during the daylight hours? Is it magical to you? It is for me.
I turn and watch
the moon watch me

Three haiku were also published in Presence, Issue #62, 2018:
dreams lost in dreams wild poppies

“Snow” by gookingsword (Pixabay)
deep in winter
and forgotten songs
waking from a dream
the night winds
unsettle the moon

your dark self—
a new moon
One of my very favorite poetry journals, hedgerow, a journal of small poems, published this haiku in their print issue #122. Isn’t the cover picture gorgeous?

My thanks to Caroline Skanne, the poet/editor behind this lovely journal.
This is #3 of the three photo haiga published in the March issue of faileD haikU, a Journal of English Senryu, Volume 1, Issue 3, edited by Michael Rehling. A bit of nursery rhyme whimsy in this one.
