Moonlight

Carpe Diem #1580 moonlight (modern kigo, extracted from “A Dictionary of Haiku”)

winter moon’s pale light
my dreams pierced with coldness
I walk alone

winter moon’s pale light
encompasses the maple
in silvery gown

my dreams pierced with coldness
shadowy figures roam
passing through me

I walk alone
unable to make contact
with the past

fading sunset
scent of woodsmoke
scents the air

frosty evening
sledding down the hull
wind whipping
someone throws an old tire
in the bonfire

a touch of color
steals my breath

painting the way
our forgotten bench

kissed with morning light
silence  of the birds
