New year, another January. Once more, a full moon arrives, this time by January 10th–six days hence!
This month, it’s the Wolf Moon:
While the almanac states that Wolf Moon is a Native American name, other sources claim that it has Anglo-Saxon origins. In Anglo-Saxon culture, the January Full Moon was also called the Moon after Yule, which is the time of the ancient festival celebrating the Winter Solstice around December 22.
This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga) that alludes to the Wolf Moon (Okami Tsuki).
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.
Have a good howl at the moon, haijin!
