I looked up Thursday evening and saw a beautiful full moon! And what a chilly night for such a moon to shine! The temperature hit record lows for the New York Metropolitan area. It was one of those Autumn days that foreshadows winter.


As November is traditionally a winter month, the kigo Winter Moon (fuyu no tsuki) feels right. So let’s go traditional this week, haijin. Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the winter moon (fuyu no tsuki).


As always:


Here’s how the challenge works:

1. write the haikai poem of your choice.
2. post the link of your post to Mister Linky.
3. pingback by posting the link to the challenge on your site.
4. read and comment on other contributors’ posts.



Make every night a marvelous one for a moon-dance, haijin!
