Illumined by the Moon

how solemn
each patch of grass
illumined by the moon

(c) Soen Nakagawa (1907-1984)

Moonlight makes choices
fog circles like planet rings
Highlights litter of dark streets

(c) Sara McNulty

Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
