Sky wears waning moon…
a wedding band part-hidden,
all shine, no craters.
Faux platinum moon
rests against midnight velvet
in a box of hope.
Very well worked, Sarah. Love it.

Thank you, Jean 🙂 It was “work”… very hard work . I wanted to say something, but it took me at least an hour to discern how I was going to say it! Your comment has made me glad I persevered.
Gorgeous imagery Sarah – love the image of the wedding band, the ‘all shine, no craters’ and the ‘midnight velvet’ box.
Thank you, Andrea 🙂 You know how much I relish imagery!
I am going to think about the “box of hope” all day! Thank you. 🙂
Excellent, Carla, and may it brighten your day, if not your whole week 🙂
Sarah, I saw the moon that night and thought of the box of hope. Wonderful phrase!
The sky makes a beautiful velvet box for all the shiny things of Cosmos. Love your haiku xx.
Thank you, Inese. Am glad you loved it 🙂 xxxx
I love the imagery. Growing up in the woods away from the city lights I know all about the velvety night sky and the shining Moon and constellations 🙂 xxxx
There are street lights around us, but they’re very dim LED ones, which means that if you’re walking along the pavement, you have to hope you don’t step in anything like fox’s poo, as you can’t see your feet! The plus side of this is that you can see the stars and planets very clearly, but best not to gaze up at them while on the move 🙂
You need a tree house for our astronomic observations, Sarah 🙂
That sounds like a wonderful idea. I might even catch sight of an owl or two while in my tree house!
This is gorgeous dearest Sarah, I love the imagery you create between the two verses, ending with the ‘box of hope’. Beautifully lyrical… xxxx
Thank you, dearest Sherri. Am glad you liked it 🙂 xxxx
Very much dearest Sarah! 🙂 xxxx
beautiful imagery and I love the image as well!
