September Heights Challenge: Moon (2 haiku)

this red moon is ours
glowing bright, feigned innocence–
white like other moons
the man on the moon
runs his fingers through oceans
turns tides to pass time

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    And he does it so well..isn’t it….Moon has on many occasions rested in my haiku..
    I love Moon…come and see here to know why..

  7. poetrydiary says:

    I think the first one is good too – the red moon isn’t really red: white like other moons.

  8. nelle says:

    Contrasting perspectives. Perhaps a show hosted by Paige Davis, trading places with the moon person for a day.

  16. Nicely written, Susan. I love the second one

  17. Susan says:

    o! The first opened my eyes wide, the 2nd turned on the light. How I hope that man never stops turning “tides to pass the time.” Love it!
