Cold Moon Haiku

cold white circle
deformed in its reflection
upon black waters

 

howling lunatics
don’t make me fearful,
quiet ones do

 

glowing clouds
streaked thinly through the sky
moon’s canvas

 

silent evil
slid through night, watched over
by a cold moon

 

the moon is out
my bones have gone cold
i blame it not

POEM: Mythic Moonlight

faces glow in mythic moonlight
a world away from here
you may ask what makes it mythic?
the stories that one hears

a young son regales his mother,
who hangs on every word,
with a tale of lunchtime mayhem
and food covertly hurled

two lovers chat about a dream
that one of them just had
about a few stolen moments,
in an alien crash pad

and an old man tells a young one,
he’s not afraid to die
how he left his fear in a field
with a piece of his thigh

so many people share one moon
focal point of their stares
souls unload a bit of burden
from the heft of their cares

Moon over Incheon

Sitting in the terminal at twilight, waiting to catch a flight to Phnom Penh, I watched the moon rise.
