    luminous ripples--
    shy moon
    swims at night

    Martin, the moon is young:
    still the child...
    hide and seek in the ripples

    I really like this. It has real resonance, like Pete Doig's Canoe Lake artwork.

    still pond holds the sky
    moon wetly sinking
    clouds and polliwogs

    dark water
    the moon's reflection
    just that

    Thank you, Martin.

    Martin, you're one of the few masters of the 2-liner, and I don't know one who's better.

    So many haiku about the moon and water. It's amazing that you stunned us with this.
