leave a light on

 

soft summer moonlight

heaven’s night light shines on all

illuminates earth

maybe God’s like motel 6:

I’ll leave a light on for ya!

cottontail tale

Link to Carpe Diem‘s “completing the haiku” just for fun…build on 2nd line given.

 

velveteen rabbit

dancing in magic moonlight

plush toy becomes real

 

delirium in dirt

Not sure if this would be considered haiku (nature)or senryu (human nature).

 

moonlight stirs crazy

work late against chance of rain

farmer digs darkness

tan renga party

A tan renga is written by two poets;  first writes a haiku, second answers with 2 more lines…

 

in the moonlight
Wisteria flowers look fragile –
a gust of wind

lovers on bench hold kisses

lavender snow covers path

shimmer of life

 

flashlight searches cattle herd

shines on curly white forehead

 

newborn calf, wet in moonlight

cow’s warm tongue licking clean

 

baby rides shiny cart to barn

gleam of mama’s watchful eyes

 

colostrum drips from suckled teat

sheen of pitchforked straw

 

farmer’s smile shimmers thankful pride
