long night moon --
of old snow

I love that first line! I've been there in the past.
Enjoyed the whole haiku as well of course! ;-)
your beautiful haiku remind me about Jules Verne:
Going to the middle of the earth...
the Island's mountains covered
by the snow
A striking image of a planet we scarcely know, called Earth.
ann, your words bring "gloomy sunday" to mind.
"sunday is gloomy, my hours are slumberless
dearest the shadows i live with are numberless
little white flowers will never awaken you..."
this being sunday, it rained all day. the super bowl's here in miami, and my team didn't play.
tinselling of rain--
i look for the moon
where it was last night
A lovely haiku...a great sense of space
(I also enjoyed your winning haiku in
January's Shiki Monthly Kukai!)
