Almost There Moon


Scrambled, Not Fried

It’s Haibun Monday again, and American Haikai Master Frank J Tassone asks us to join him at the dVerse Poets Pub and create/share a Haibun (prose/haiku combo) incorporating some Moon imagery…



Almost There Moon

Can there be such a thing as a seven-eighths moon, a moon whose missing silver sliver, lost somewhere in The Milky Way, is thinner than the Dog Star’s bark, thinner than the atmosphere of Mars?

Can there be a nine-tenths moon, an un-full moon more full than this?

It’s hard to imagine such a thing; hard, this early in the morning, this late in the year, this far from wherever my vanished lover may be, which isn’t here.

last night’s fullest moon
still sings, bell-clear, this morning
—departure’s aria—
