Moon Haiku


The moon and I,
silent on the boardwalk —

letting the waves speak.

(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath
for their continuing inspiration.
Bet you weren't expecting a boardwalk poem
on January 7th! But it was t-shirt weather here today,
and last year, too, at this time
we were experiencing a weird heatwave.
Mr. D and I are worried about the Earth.)

Oh, I can see the moon and hear the waves...very lovely haiga.

I worry about the Earth too but hopefully she will shake off all those destroying her.

the world will change whatever we do or don't do - let us live with it.

Lovely. To be in cahoots with the moon is a wonderful idea!

I also love to walk beside the ocean when it's too cold to swim. That's when the boardwalk is silent...

Beautiful.

I would so love to sit there and watch the moon, from afar. I worry about the earth, too. :(
