#Haikai Challenge #146: Buck Moon

Moon’s churned cream glows bright
while fireflies and rabbits play;
thunder’s promise grows.
Grazing bucks nibble clover’s
sweet dew as velvet blossoms.

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:

The July full moon, the Buck Moon:

The next full Moon will occur on Sunday, July 5, 2020, at 12:44AM ET, and is known as the Full Buck Moon. It is also known as the Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, or the Wort Moon. Even though this Moon turns 100% full on July 5th (in the Eastern Time Zone), we can all celebrate it on the 4th along with fireworks! Watch it rise in the east after sunset on the 4th.

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