#Haiku: Silent

Old stone staircase with fallen leaves in the ominous moonlight

Heaven’s moon rises

over the barren garden

autumn leaves falling.

Here is my response to Carpe Diem #1316 Moon of My Delight

For the last episode about The Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam, Chèvrefeuille has chosen a quatrain which he calls ‘Moon of My Delight’:

Ah, Moon of my Delight who know’st no wane,
The Moon of Heav’n is rising once again:
How oft hereafter rising shall she look
Through this same Garden after me – in vain!

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
