crescent moon
she leans deeper
into her cane

    Given all the moon haiku that have been composed over the centuries, I love this one for its assonance in the second line helping me focus on the shape. I also love the way the alliterative "c"-sound of the first and last words are like an embrace.

    I love moon haiku and this is lovely. I'm thinking the crescent is waning.

  3. Greg Longenecker Says:

    I agree with everything Gaby and Nancy say; this is a wonderfully touching haiku.

    I love haiku that could act as an opening sentence to a short story or a novel. This is incredibly atmospheric and makes me think of multiple streams of storylines.

    This is gorgeous, deserving of many rereads. It got me thinking about how, like the moon, we are always whole, yet at different times in life through illness and or ageing also partly in shadow … Love it.
