Love this haiku in its entirety but also as you use an old yet regularly used term for the moon in April:
Full Pink Moon – April This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
Hi, Alan and Dylan, and thanks for your kind words.
Alan, you were spot on with your comment. the april moon is what i had in mind when this haiku came into existence.
There are no specific names for full moons in Slovene folklore but we sometimes use traditional names for months, most of which are difficult if not impossible to translate. But moons and their names have fascinated me since i learned about their existence in the English language and culture (although most of the names were given by the indigenous peoples).
By the way, I write almost all of my poems directly in English. However, it being my second (or, rather, third) language i'm quite used to helping myself with dictionaries and thesauri as well as googling all kinds of stuff…
