summer sky . . .

summer sky . . .
she lets her kimono
gently fall
before wrapping herself
twice in moonlight

Another Supermoon–July 12! Another poem about moonlight. I’ll be featuring a few more small moon poems here over the next couple of weeks, in honor of my birthday (July 20)–you remember, the day men walked on the moon . . .

Why not join me, for a chance to win something wonderful? (A book of small poems, I’m thinking . . . . ) Just send me a haiku or tanka about the moon in a comment here. I’ll post all entries in a celebration of the summer moon before drawing a winner’s name from my old gardening hat one minute after midnight (C.S.T.), July 21.

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    Happy Birthday Month, Margaret! Here is a moonlight tanka for you:

    the self
    I’ve clung to
    all these years
    on water

    Happy Birthday – born on the cusp of Cancer and Leo, an interesting place to be. Hope your day will be a joyful one!
    backing out
    of a dream
    to find
    just the moon
    at my side
    Best, Mary
