One response to “Today’s Haiku (January 9, 2012)

  1. Strange to see the moon remaining in any shape very long??? Except perhaps in the idea of spotting…where the ballerina keeps from getting dizzy in her spins by keeping her eyes on one spot… not looking at anything but that spot… So perhaps your ballerina here may not want to look at anything else in the month as she spins around until she returns to that same spot…the same time of the moon. Or perhaps her life is going so fast a whole month has passed and the moon is right back in the same shape since the last time she saw it.
    Interesting haiku. Thanks
