#Haikai Challenge #150 (8/2/20): Sturgeon Moon #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

Today or tonight 3rd Aug there is a full moon. Frank Tassone tells this full moon has many names, among them Sturgeon Moon. So as we transcend from Summer to Autumn Frank suggest: “This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the sturgeon moon.”

I have chosen a Tanka .

Summer’s passing I grieve

Yet soon her gifts we’ll receive

Silver reflections

Stone cast, sturgeon moon ripples

And so the world keeps turning.

    Good poem! I like that the sound of β€œturning” takes me back to β€œsturgeon.”
