In the Full Moon


in the full moon

the summer heat is dipping

entwined pale limbs

    • We were having some sultry nights over here when I wrote this, so something sensual was in order. Of course, since this was posted the English summer has reverted to type and blustery has replaced sultry. Ah well!

      Glad you enjoyed it, Georgia 🙂

      • I wouldn’t mind a bit of blustery right now … but I suppose it would get old quickly … and I did enjoy the read very much! 🙂

    • I’ve been wanting to write a haiku where the lines can be read as running together (or not) like that for a while now, so I was pleased when this came together (I must say!) and I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      Ah those sensual summer nights under a beaming moon 🙂
