Below is the poem of the week entitled DRUNKEN MOON which was written by poet Poet Destroyer A .

deeper than twilight
the moon to moon afterglow
a wave crush the mood
Stereotype motion
Two face under water 
Human injury 

(Senryu of Being Misjudged)

    A friend sent me a picture called full moon over the water and the moon had a visible crack in the centre. I must say though it was a lovely moon. The photographer had excellent timing he captured her just before she sunk below the surface of the water.

    you have shown a super example of your theme, PD. Glad to see this one. And I'm leaving on a jet plane (from nashville at 5) YeeHA

    I love the imagery of your haiku , and feeling it tansmits in the second line- the moon to moon afterglow.

  1. Date: 7/4/2015 3:30:00 AM

    What a beauty of twilight you have sketched in these splendid few words of your sweet Haiku. The line 'waves crashing dreams' opens scenes after scenes of crashed dreams making us realize the beauty of your poem. Great Haiku PD and thank you once again for your comments on my Independence Poem. Love and best wishes always…Ravindra K Kapoor
