Moonrise

Published in response to Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt: Moonrise

Hokku:

moonrise
holding their hands on their knees
evening at a house

Our host’s attempt at a eight stanza renga with the above haiku as the starting verse:

Hokku:

moonrise
holding their hands on their knees
evening at a house

on her wooden throne
grandmother makes me a new quilt

an open window
the sound of a chainsaw in consonance
with a woodpecker

the sweet perfume of young leaves
makes me dance and sing with joy

she smiles at me
love at first sight this is
25 years ago

eyes full of compassion
looking at the young leaves

blue irises bloom
the old pond becomes young again
a frog jumps in

she, the moon, reflects in the water
splash … her face wrinkles

moonrise
holding their hands on their knees
evening at a house
sitting on the porch gaziing
at the moon telling stories

  1. Hi Jazzy – lovely words .. each of your poems and thoughts brings out other ideas, leading me to new thoughts … she, the moon, reflects in the water; splash … her face wrinkles ….

    While the visionary cherry tree is a wonderful idea … so pleased you showed us .. “Even Woodpecker” and the Patient Gardener by Vision Dream … cheers Hilary
