Crescent Moon!

The moon whispers a hushed tale,
Of love and harmony.
In the winds from western trail.

***

Crescent moon Venus dances around,
Brilliant arch in the sky,
Leaving many a poets enchanted!

***

Curving up after many a days,
Muslims glancing to the skies,
breaking the fast of twenty nine days!!

***

Happy Ramadan!

Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai!

  1. I hope your fast was easy - I am unsure of the correct way to wish those celebrating a Happy Ramadan.
    There are so many ways to celebrate ~ may we continue to learn from each other offering acceptance and peace.

  4. The stories under, around and beyond the moon are each magical. So many whispered over time. You capture the unknown/ mysterious well :)
