Moonlight touches the emotions...for some sorrow disappears, for others it increases. Moonlights pulls the strings. // paul

I like it a lot, but probably it is not the kind of haiku that the haiku society would deem as true haiku because you inserted an emotion into it. From what i understand, the haiku writer cannot make judgments about sad, happy, etc. Just present picture of something. But some of them do not even like metaphor and I love that , like when you say Taste of moonlight. Well, you asked my opinion. I love the first two lines.
