Haunted Orb

Luna's specter glows
   Gazing at her reflection
In the black night sea

Inspired by Raul's "Reflections" contest

    A beautiful and vivid picture you paint with your words here Donna. My mind's eye could plainly see the moon's reflection in the dark sea. God bless Donna, Sincerely, Love, Moses

    Good luck in Raul's contest, Donna dear, but by your entry luck is not necessary as from title to words this haiku has captivated the reader... wonderful visual and the moon is quite haunting sometimes... my entry is Revelation ... every poet has seen a special view of Raul's photo.. fascinating.. blessings ...luv.. thankxxx for being a dear friend...

    Awesome visual! The image popped right in my head after reading this. It would have to be a full moon, or a half moon could reflect the other half making it whole:) New moon's are just annoying, all style and no substance, and honestly I never thought Robert Pattinson was all that hot...dude's a bit skinny but I guess 13 year old girls go for the effeminate dreamy look nowadays...sorry I kind of drifted off topic:) Thanks for sharing Donna.

    The moon is still shining on through war and pestilence. Keep it up. Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish
