Sturgeon Moon – A Tanka

Sturgeon Moon

Full moon rising high
Reflecting light on water
Stirring dormant souls
Silhouettes of jumping fish
Visible in glow of dusk

the corn was nearly ready for harvest,

    I have seen a face in the moon, the Rabbit in the moon… but I have not looked for a fish!
    Lovely image and verse 🙂
