Solar eclipse (2)

I composed three haiku in response to a Carpe Diem Utabukoro challenge in which you choose a haiku (your own or someone else’s) and let it be your inspiration. I chose this gem from Japanese haiku master, Basho:

Fire-white halo

at the moment of eclipse

I notice your face 



My haiku:

Sun lost in shadow

     no passing moon will smother 

           enduring flames


Hidden eye

        endures darkness

                with steady gaze


Clouded star

         passing gloom cannot

                     hide your charm

    1. That’s an interesting thought about the long lasting impact of the eclipse…it probably wouldn’t hurt for a natural cosmic event to linger in people’s consciousness…I’m not really plugged into popular media so am not tuned in to what mileage it’s getting.

  1. You have excelled with this trio Janice. All capture the moment of an eclipse. I still vividly remember a total eclipse way back in the mid 1970’s. What amazed us was as we stood on a balcony taking in the eclipse all the surrounding birds noisily flew into trees and went silent then welcomed the emerging sun a few minutes later as in daybreak.
