Beauty of the night
her lunar eye looks t'wards man
to light his slumber
Is this my reality or yours?

Personally, I usually pull the curtain on the lunar eye. I like it dark for sleeping. :-D

Oh, I love to see the moon, especially when it's full and brilliant. But not when I'm ready to go to sleep. Maybe I should email you the painting I did of it, for one of my poems.

Moonlight sonata,
exposing the earth with the
light of reverie.

I'm a pumpkin at 9 pm unless I'm on WT :D

Moonlight Sonata...one of my favorite pieces that I had to learn on the piano...seems like a hundred years ago.

Today was the first time in a long time that I could even coax a haiku onto paper...I just couldn't seem to get into the pictures for a while...hopefully there'll be more to come! :-D

Purling rivulet
splish-splashing down the hillside,
may I cool my toes?

Right, lumin...brain gets ahead of stumbling fingers. Will fix IMMEDIATELY! :D
Today's pic's a rerun and I get tired of them after a while.
Why did I want a cool glass of water after reading yours :?:
