Carpe Diem #1059 Harvest Moon


peeking
through cloudy blinds
harvest moon

whispering
in the nighttime sky
moon beams

peeling
lies in a spiraled heap
big moon smiling

"With this prompt we enter the autumn section of Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" from which I have extracted all the prompts, all modern kigo (seasonwords), for this tribute month. Through the haiku she, Jane Reichhold, uses as examples for the modern kigo I hope to inspire you to create haiku or tanka to honor Jane ...

harvest
the golden grain color
in the moon

the harvest moon
bringing in the pumpkins
yet on the porch

And than this beauty, also by Jane Reichhold, but taken from the online version of "A Dictionary of Haiku" ... a real masterpiece:

turning out the light
renting the room to the moon
for a night
