#Haiku: Silent

Old stone staircase with fallen leaves in the ominous moonlight

Heaven’s moon rises

over the barren garden

autumn leaves falling.



Linda Lee Lyberg

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)
