3 Super Moon Haiku


Moon’s flame-tipped silver

Near blinding intensity

Lamplighter’s joy beams


Ruffled bridal lace

Aura of clouds surround moon

Remember night’s bliss


Veiled intrigante*

Attired for grand gala, moon’s

Poised to turn all heads

    1. Thank you so much–glad you enjoyed! If the word is “intrigante”, I have to boast about my HUGE-O Webster’s Unabridged New Universal (2nd Edition) Dictionary I got at Half-Price Books for $10 (reg $70). It weighs a ton and I LOVE it…and “intrigante” was a word I stumbled upon and fell in love with too 🙂 Words are too fun! As an English Major, I despair that our language has spiraled down; I cringe, listening to professional people on TV who have no grasp of the grammar I learned throughout years of public school…and if I see one more person write “loose” when they mean “lose”, I may leap off my 2nd floor balcony 🙂

      1. You’re welcome – and yes, intrigante is the word I just learned. I cringe also at word usage – and mistakes made such as its/it’s and there/their. I think that spell check is making people lazy. Or forgetful. Reading my local newspaper can make me crazy as well. I don’t think they employ a human copy editor!


      1. I wish i had that view, too much light pollution in the city where I live, but i can always draw on memory of the times the moon was just within reach. your haikus are really wonderful.
