MOON







Wilderness calls me
 full moon in a cloudless sky
the smell of burnt bush

  1. There many places in the US where that scent would greet visitors to the wilderness. Nice haiku with a sad ending.

  13. Does the moon have the power to burn a bush? Ah, I think many people would be surprised, wouldn't they? :)

  15. Your haiku evokes a full moon shining on the aftermath of a bush fire, the smell brought on the breeze.
