at moon rise knowing
you will never walk again with me,
spill of winter light

poignant and pretty

very pretty as I wait patiently for a thick blanket of snow on a full moon clear night...hopeful, anyway that the two will coincide this winter.

The petals of these roses are so beautiful.

so sad princess.

Princess Haiku said...

Moon,
There is no happy love... every haiku poet knows that. :)

Ched, you are back! And perhaps this winter you will experience a night of perfect moon and untouched snow.

Such imagery for such a short poem, I don't know why but sometimes the short poems are the most meaningful and thoughtful of all.

I love that poem! :D

Princess Haiku said...

Thank you Mavin, you have such a bright spirit.
