an open grove allows in the moon’s glow… faithful delight

What a spectacular image! Not to sound super-nerdy here, but I couldn't help but think of my days playing Zelda, and wondering through the confusing forests. As far as the form goes I'm glad you broke the rules... fewest possible words for maximum impact is the key to good haiku! You did excellent here!
