Tackle It Tuesday, Moonlight

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

This greeting is the one I always use on my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem and today I will use it here for our new Tackle It Tuesday. Why? Well ... in our next month of Carpe Diem (December 2012) I have chosen for classical Japanese 'kigo' or seasonwords for prompts. Next month the prompts are all about winter, see for yourself here , so for this weeks 'Tackle' I have chosen for a classical kigo or seasonword of Autumn.

Our 'Tackle' prompt is moonlight In classical Japan they think the moon of Autumn is most beautiful. In that ... I follow them ... I think also that the Autumn moon is the most beautiful. But ... also in my region of the world (Europe) the Winter moon is beautiful too.

So the goal for this episode of Tackle It Tuesday is to write a haiku on moonlight. Enjoy the fun and be creative. And ... of course I hope you will share your creativity here on Tackle It Tuesday.

My take on Moonlight:

reflecting sunlight
our natural satellite -
dark of it's own

dark of it's own
the moon catches beams of sunlight
sharing them with us

sharing them with us
her wonderful smile
autumn moonlight

Hope to see a lot of haiku on moonlight. Be inspired and share your creativity.

Just a little treat ... Moonlight Serenade ....

This Tackle It Tuesday will stay on 'till December 10th 11.59 AM (CET). So you have two weeks to share your haiku ... Tackle It Tuesday will be from now on a bi-weekly haiku meme.
