#Haiku Happenings #2: Dwight’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!
This beautiful moon was captured by my sister-in-law in Southern British Columbia. Frank Tassone, shared with us today that early native Americans set time by the lunar cycle. They gave names to each one. The April full moon is called the Pink Moon! Seems to fit in very well with the falling of pink cherry blossoms. He asked us to write a Haikai poem that in some way included the pink April Moon.
April Full Moon shines
Light rubbing off on the trees
Spring lights up the world
Shades of pink cherry blossoms fall
Soft petals become Spring snow
