Two Moon Haikus




Two Moon Haikus

I.

The moon of summer
flirts with the navy blue sky
behind her lace fan
  


II.

The wind blows too hard
behind the running clouds
for the moon to turn on

  1. You said: "moon"
    Me: "Sun"

    Is it the moon,
    or the sun?

    And
    does that matter?

  2. I bet the moon is trying to make itself visible. I love when it's there, it follows me home and I feel protected. =)

    Beautiful Haikus, Hedgewitch. =)

    Kiss you girl. =*

  11. Hmm, I personally think the photo has the sun behind it but that's just nitpicking...

    Personifying the moon and the sky, good images.
