Haiku: 2008 Full Moon Calendar


Full Moon calendar
Written by a stargazing
“lunatic” poet

Wind blows and wolves howl
Beneath the hoary Ice Moon
In January

Frigid winter days
Snow Moon in February
may bring heavy storms

When Sap Moon appears
Crows begin to fly and caw
March is the month

Pink Moon in April
Harbinger of rosy blooms
The Earth welcomes Spring

Silver circle orb
Shining it month of May
Corn Moon, time to plant

On June Eighteenth
Time of the month for Full Moon
The Strawberry Moon!

Astronomical
Totally phenomenal
Buck Moon in July

Good time to catch fish
In hot and humid weather
Under Sturgeon Moon

Warm September days
The air is clear without haze
Night’s Harvest Moon ablaze

Cool October night
Shining silver in the sky
Gibbous Hunter’s Moon

Jack Frost comes calling
November’s leaves turn golden
Chilly nights; Beaver Moon

Daylight is shorter
December nights are longer
Under the Cold Moon

This December, there
Are two full moons. Second one
called the Blue Moon

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
