#Haikai Challenge (5/3/20): Flower Moon

May’s Flower Moon is the last Super Moon in a series of four for the year – she saved her best for last, as the critters who were sleeping or in hibernation are now awake to appreciate her beauty.

Frogs raise their voices;
Turtles rest on floating logs –
Silver lights each face.



Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:
Including the last Super Moon of 2020:

When the full Moon appears this month, it will be ever-so-slightly farther away than it was in April and March. May’s full Moon still qualifies as a supermoon, but it won’t be as bright or as big as the others in the series, technically speaking. However, the difference in distance between its orbit and April’s—about 2500 miles—is not much in the grand scale of space, so you will still see a bright, beautiful supermoon!

This week, write the haikai of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the Flower moon (full moon, super moon, etc.)
