Mezza Luna ~ haibun

Mezza Luna

I roll down these dark roads beneath a moon that gives no quarter. Even its half-light provides a beacon that offers comfort to one who is headed home. Given time, it will shine even brighter. But I will be home by then, my heart content, and I’ll be able to share its brilliance.

bare branches
reach for glowing orb
in darkness

 

This is my response to Haibun Monday 2-27-23: Mezza Luna,
the prompt from Frank Tassone at dVerse ~ Poets Pub.

Mezza Luna is Italian for the moon’s quarter phase, or half-moon.

  1. I no longer enjoy driving in the dark, but I like travelling in a car at night so I can look up at the night sky. The moon has always been seen as ‘a beacon that offers comfort to one who is headed home’. I love the image in the haiku, Ken.
