Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars *Basho’s “the autumn full moon”*

This week the source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars is a haiku, written by the haiku master Matsuo Basho:

* * *
the autumn full moon:
all night long
I paced round the lake.

* * *

I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit when writing mine:

* * *
after storm
on maple’ s bare branches
only full moon

* * *
reaching up
eager to touch the moon
even mountain top

* * *
up all night
howling at the moon
neighbour’ s dog

* * *
