#Haiku Happenings #7: Suzanne’s latest haiku for my current #haikai challenge!
In his prompt Frank J Tassone -haiku challenge – pink moon Frank writes that the Native Americans call the April Full Moon a pink moon for it heralds the appearance of the “moss pink,” or wild ground phlox—one of the early spring flowers.
Here in Oz it’s autumn so the phlox isn’t blooming but the other night as I closing my blinds I noticed the moon was casting a pinkish glow onto the surrounding clouds.
A pink moon
riding high on the wind
– my heart leaps
The same thing happened at the last full moon.
