Carpe Diem #1545 The Water Fowl (crossroads)

the water-fowl
pecks and shivers
the moon on the waves  © Zuiryu

scooping up the moon
in the wash bassin,
and spilling it   © Ryuho

I kept hanging the moon
on the pine tree, and taking it off,
gazing at it the while  © Hokushi

 

gulping the moon
water fowl spills its contents
into the waves

gulping the moon
shaped biscuits secretly
gull races away

water fowl spills its contents
as plover and willet
peck and scoop

into the waves
a pelican dives
dosing the moon
