Moon Smile

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1186, Hazy Moon
Perhaps the most common cause of haze is produced by water droplets in humid weather. Other kinds of particles like dust, soot or volcanic ash can produce different phenomena when the light from the Sun or the Moon shines through them. (Source)


Hazy Moon (Oborozuki) with Cherry Blossoms

from behind a veil
she enlightens fragile blossoms
a beautiful sight

Here is my attempt:

a smile at night
through humid haze of evening
moon’s face appears


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
