moonlit floor
the scent of sumac wafts
through the shadows

    I love moonlit floor and wafts through the shadows

    I just hope the sumac wasn't poison ivy! I didn't realise that was a kind of sumac too! ;-)

    Hi Martin,
    this is such an interesting haiku...
    I've never really noticed what the scent
    of sumac is like...I shall pay more attention!
    The setting is so lovely.

    Lake Michigan
    shimmering in moonlight
    singing a new song
