Flower Moon (posted by Frank J. Tassone)
"The Full Moon of May is known as Flower Moon to signify the flowers that bloom during this month. There is a myriad of wildflowers which bloom in May in the Northern Hemisphere, where these traditional Full Moon names originated. For example, many types of anemone, wild garlic, indigo, bluebells, lupine, sundrops, and violets, to name just a few. It is no wonder that the colorful displays these flowers create in nature have inspired people to name this time after them."
"Write a moon haibun."
I gaze at phases the moon provides from crescent
to full flower moon in May. Like a nanny,
the moon watches over its silver charges
bathed in its light.
Sometimes dark shadows appear on the face,
giving it a more somber appearance. Moon,
in any phase is always a welcome sight.
