Moon Haiku

the hunter's burden -
full moon

hunted deer
its eyes search the moon
one last time

when you see my face
what do you see?

first quarter -
half a coffee ring on
my newspaper

November moon -
the last ball of cheese
in the fridge

eve of the storm
black clouds stain
the full moon

a poker-faced moon,
three lovers

rising moon -
which basket will you
fall into?

Eight of a growing number of moon haiku. "Moon" is an autumn kigo.
Except for one, these were written within the last four weeks. "November moon" was published online at http://www.tempslibres.org, 01-15 November 2004.
