1 March: dVerse Mezzaluna

AI art: a crescent moon, mezzaluna, clouds, four figures by a tree

A Mezzaluna Haibun

Mezzaluna up there, catching errant clouds on your hook. Up there, a chill on souls rising from where western stars move both heaven and earth. For a day, cut and sliced on a bias, night’s fabric and dress, then redressed each month. Full and blousy. Waning and waxing. Sadness and joy, pale and faint at your dizzying heights. Up there, up there. We stare up up.

Shadows on your tide
Riding on your wraps of wind
You buried your face

    1. Thanks. I’m going to rework this into stanzas. It doesn’t seem happy as a Haibun.

      1. I think that’s a good idea. 🙂


  1. Catching the errant clouds… great idea


  2. Wow, what a beautiful and poetic piece of writing. The imagery of the Mezzaluna catching errant clouds on its hook is so vivid and captivating. I love how you explore the different phases of the moon and how they evoke different emotions in us. It’s true that the moon has a profound effect on our souls and this haibun captures that perfectly. My question is, what inspired you to write about the Mezzaluna and how did you come up with such stunning imagery?


    1. Thank you very much, Zoe. The subject matter was from a writing prompt at dVerse Poets. The imagery I created using A.I.(artificial intelligence), specifically the Midjourney bot. dVerse is on WordPress, so just search for them if you wish to join in.
