Harvest Moon -- Lughnasadh Haiku

**I wrote against traditional 5 -7-5 and twisted to 7-5-7 on these...can I do that?**

Looking up in the sky at 
A full harvest moon 
Cool, aglow this autumn night

Mists circle in, surrounding 
Earth's last summer song 
Warm nights are now memories

The Hunter calls the Chosen
To this sacred grove 
Children of seasons gather

The leaves--brown and gold and red 
Signify the end 
Of summer's warmth and passion

Souls are drawn within, waiting 
Keeping close to home 
Till winter's dying cycle

    I like the way you twisted the haiku... ha ha , i enjoy it when poets break the haiku golden rules. your left a beautiful and deep portrait of the undying moon moaning stars within the night, almost like a bygone era. and still the moon will sit there far into the sky. tucking away as seasons come and go. i call this gem a moon charm... adding the inspiration to my fave's always~ LINDA
