I took this picture of the moon tonight we my new-to-me Canon PowerShot SX10 is. Because of the longer focal length needed in the capture I used a mono-pod, and used the timer setting, so I would not undo the camera’s Image Stabilization when snapping the shot. After several tries, and waiting on passing vehicles, mission accomplished. I headed back into the embracing warmth of our home to see the results.
Though I am happy with the results, as I was looking at this photo, it just cried for something “else” to be complete. What to add I wonder and then I had an idea for a Haiku. I have not written many Haiku’s, to the lover of the art form it obvious why, so I decide try again. Here is my photo of the moon complete with Haiku.
I love the full moon. It’s one of nature’s wonders that’s a perfect subject for haiku. Nice work!
Thank you! It is my second Haiku about the moon. My haiku critic is no longer on WordPress so I am not sure how good it is. None the less I like trying my hand at haiku from time to time. Thanks for stopping by and till the next time Peace.
What a beautiful combination! The haiku does make the photo….complete. And very Zen.
Thanks! Coming from you that means a lot. Your work is wonderful so thanks again.

This is from my place called Pondering Things and Taking Pictures. I haven’t spent much time there since my Dad died this past December. Turns out he was about the only one who visited anyway. Over the last several months I have been getting hits and this is one that has been getting the most visits. As I ponder what to do with Ponder Things and Taking Pictures I will share some of my poems and such with you all ~ Peace.
A beautifully captured full moon … paired with just the right creative touch of your Haiku completes a nice Haiga! Thank you for sharing!
