Solstice Moon

horizon
trails flames of solstice–
moon shines dark

Inspired by Nina’s gouache painting, above, and Frank Tassone’s #Haikai challege to choose our own summer kigo.

Nina’s painting made me think of flowers and butterflies.  And when I saw the photo of Martha Graham dancing in the Times, I felt immediately that she must be holding the moon.

Summer solstice this year coincides with a solar eclipse of the new moon.  Magic is afoot!

    The moon shines dark—there’s something ominous about that, for us at least. I admire oxymoron’s and this is a good one.

    Another instance of seeing an image suggested by the words rather than what’s actually there, the woman (Martha Graham) because of the words ‘strike’ and ‘afoot’ I assumed was a footballer….
