Moonstruck – A Haibun

The moon appears in stages reminding us of life and our ever-changing journey.  At the start of this year I made decisions that will affect my life moving forward.  Pumped by my resolve the path was clear for me.  I expected resistance and experienced some bumps on the road to what I call my rediscovery

This Friday I will reach a milestone marking the end of the the first part of the endeavor.  I stopped to smell the roses on the way and realized that anything is possible when you want it bad enough.

So look up and let the moon guide you in stages. Be brave, be strong, and most importantly, always be you!

Wish upon a star
As you gaze up at the moon
Your dreams will come true

Artist’s Impression

Artist’s Impression

Rain clouds slowly moved on
after resolving their differences
with an impatient evening sky
anxiously waiting to throw
a star-spangled velvet cover 
on the remains of the day

If the full moon could speak
he would gently ask for
the wind to refrain
That the sea might remain calm
and allow its light to reflect 
on a still surface illuminating the night

The artist’s preparations, meticulous 
A serene nightscape comes to life
On a daily blank canvas
Earth and sky exist in harmony
Calming, soothing 
and brilliant in its beauty
