long night moon --
shadow craters
of old snow

    I love that first line! I've been there in the past.

    Enjoyed the whole haiku as well of course! ;-)

    Dear Ann

    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
    and atmosphere.
    (I also enjoyed your winning haiku in
    January's Shiki Monthly Kukai!)
