chill of crisp night air
follows shortest day of year
Long Nights Moon coming
This haiku is my response to
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #65: Solstice II.
The coming full moon (22 Dec 2018) is known as
Oak Moon, Cold Moon, or Long Nights Moon.
The photo is of the Frost Moon or Beaver Moon, taken on 22 Nov 2018, in Missouri.
