“full snow moon”

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1611, Tan Renga Challenge Month 2019 (15)
“Today I have another Tan Renga Challenge Hineri episode for you all. As you all know Hineri means with a twist, so today’s challenge is to create not only the 2nd (two-lined) stanza, but also the 3rd (three-lined) stanza and 4th (two-lined) stanza through association. For today’s Hineri Tan Renga Challenge I have chosen a haiku by one of our longtime members of our haiku family, Hamish Managua Gunn. Hamish is not only a wonderful haiku poet, but also a wonderful author. He was my co-host for a while and I have warm memories of him.”

Full Snow Moon

Full Snow Moon (Supermoon February 2019)

Here is the haiku to work with:

full snow moon
stirs the ladybug
on cold bare branches                             © Hamish

she wants to dance a jitterbug
who would see her on white branch    

on forest floor
animals scurry at night
snow moon haloes   

at dawn white light vanishes
day turns the sky pale pink                    © Sara

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.
