Serene glow of pregnant Moon
Long night stretches on
In the early hours of Christmas Day, just as I was settling down to sleep, I was drawn to my window by the sound of a blackbird singing. The light of the full moon made the sky strangely bright for 1:30 AM and was presumably fooling the creature into thinking it was dawn. It was a magical experience. Before I returned to bed the haiku was scribbled into my notepad.
Last night I found my pastels – which I haven’t used for several years – and sketched the picture to accompany it. I’m quite tempted to paint it on canvas as well.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂
