Looking ahead:

After a bombardment of neighborhood fireworks, a serene silence arose. We slept soundly, but the call of nature awoke me around 3:00 in the morning EST. As I looked out the window, what did I see?

The July full moon, the Buck Moon:

The next full Moon will occur on Sunday, July 5, 2020, at 12:44AM ET, and is known as the Full Buck Moon. It is also known as the Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, or the Wort Moon. Even though this Moon turns 100% full on July 5th (in the Eastern Time Zone), we can all celebrate it on the 4th along with fireworks! Watch it rise in the east after sunset on the 4th.

A full moon that connects to Independence Day? SOLD!

This week, write the haikai of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the Buck moon.

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.

Enjoy your July moon-gazing while you can, haijin!
