chrysanthemum moon

Chrysanthemum moon

lighting sad departure

wings etch the sky

Chrysanthemum moon

the vast heavens a stage

this autumn night


lighting sad departure

in V-shaped formation

their piercing cries


wings etch the sky

grey shadows sliver the moon

how summer has flown!

In response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #44, Troiku Challenge, inspired by two haiku by Buson.

    1. Thank you Claudia…the two haiku chosen for the challenge prompt are autumn themed…as I wrote I realized (admitted) that I am feeling summer waning, autumn feelings are already here…in colours, sounds, lighting, length of day, harvest and so on.
