Eerie – A Haiku




Wreathed in winter mists,

Enshrouded by cloudy haze,

Defiant moon shines.

Love Bite – A Tanka – #writephoto



Crescent moon love bite

Scars the night’s indigo skin,

Dominating view.

Framed by leafy silhouettes,

A vision in black and blue.

Thursday photo prompt – Luna – #writephoto

Sue has posted some beautiful pictures recently for #writephoto but I’ve been too low on time and motivation to get round to writing the stories I have in mind! Therefore, this week, I thought it best to stick to a short and simple tanka. Thanks Sue for the lovely lunar image.

Witching Hour – A Haiku

witching hour


Moon dressed silver-white

A costume of cobweb clouds

Ghostly, eerie sight
