“Harvest Moon,” haibun, #TankaTuesday

The five women gathered under the pearly radiance of the full harvest moon. They represented air, water, earth, fire, and spirit. Hands clasped together, they formed a circle, their upturned faces raised toward the orbs’ soft glow. This was how they would pay homage to the passing of another cycle—another ending, and another beginning. Change was the only constant in life.

harvest moon—
reflections of change
mirror our souls

  1. Lovely images. I always marvel at the full moon. I was listening to the radio and a short snippet was about a guy who was driving on a winding road and thought the full moon was a UFO because it kept moving!!!
