a moonslice

    Hi Nina,

    I could visualize your poem
    and loved your use of 'moonslice'
    - kala

    An unforgettable picture. Congratulation Nina!

    God's bread!
    Between the slices of mandarin
    a mouthful of moon

    dry sand -
    in the mandarin tree
    a moonslice

    This is a beautifully crafted verse. The contrast of textures is striking, as well as the delightful combination in the last two lines. It was great to wake up to see this in my inbox!

    Best wishes
    Norman

    a slice of tangerine
    a mouthful of moon -
    soon mouth filled with sand

    a deep winters night
    softly-through barren branches
    a sliver of moon

    cross the everglades-
    alligators, egrets
    and drylands

    I am a new visitor to this site. I liked many of the haikus in this site.This haiku by Nina Shamana is excellent.

    Only thing I wanted to know is whetehr there is any restriction (like 5,7,5) on the syllables.Or is it the freedom of expression that makes these haikus impressive.

    wetlands--
    beneath overburden grapefruit tree
    yellow harvest moon
