#Haibun: Wolf Moon


The night is cold, perfect for a dip in the hot tub.

Naked, we step out into the brisk air and search for the full moon. Above us, the night sky is rampant with blue-black clouds, backlit by the beautiful orb. Like her namesake she scratches and bites at the shape shifting shadows, howling for her rightful place in the pack. This is my night- away with you filthy beasts!

We dip our toes into the steaming water, and immerse ourselves into the lighted depths. As the tensions of the day dissolve and evaporate into the mist, the vivid blue wolf makes her shadowy debut.

At war with the clouds
wolf moon howls for rightful place
cold southwest sky glows

It’s Haibun Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and Victoria is calling for poems about Fuyu No Tsuki, the winter moon. Head over and see what the other poets have to say!

  1. What a fun haibun! I like the moon giving the clouds what for, scratching for its rightful place. And in a hot tub at night…that is wonderful.


  2. Do you know, I’ve never experienced a hot tub, Linda. I’ve never seen one other than on TV. You’ve given me a taste of the experience in your haibun with the added extra of a wolf moon! I love the description of the sky, ‘rampant with blue-black clouds, backlit by the beautiful orb’.
