    The peach at maximum ripeness is like the moon at its greatest magnitude. Any more and there is putrefaction and bursting. Here though sweetness and mystery are at their peak.

    Ah, yes, overripe fruit and the large phase of the moon during harvest times.

    Very sensual on many levels.

    Thank you for the wonderful haiku.

    warm regards,

    The moon swells to its
    fullness; near to bursting, it
    wisely starts to wane.

    And I constantly enjoy reading and re-reading your haiku about Route 66:

    Site: Route 66

    crossroads . . .
    a rain-filled hubcap
    teeming with stars

    Night clouds
    a spider shows me
    the harvest moon
