Apprentice’s holiday:
a good-luck amulet
forgotten in the grass

moonshine

waiting all year

dance to the memory

full moon in her eyes

This Carpe Diem Haiku Kai prompt is in celebration of a holiday that the servants were given: “Yabu-iri” literally “thicket-entering,” is an obscure season marker in haiku for spring (or late New Year). On about the sixteenth of the first month, servants and apprentices were allowed to go home for a short visit. This would have meant that the holiday started  with the full moon.

Dance with Me


Join us at New World Creative Union for a dance with the arts our prompt for Wednesday Wake Up Call. Thanks to Natasha for a great prompt!

The music beckons through waves of color …

Dance with me

while the night is young

beneath the harvest moon

my dearest one

***

Dance with me

while the night is dark

we move as one

hands caress their mark

***

Dance with me

in the misty glade

hot tendrils rise

nymph takes my place

***

Dance with me

by the light of the moon

morning’s light

will enter much too soon

Van Morrison could always get me to dance / He still can to “Moon Dance
