#Haikai Challenge #158 (9/28/20): Harvest Moon (meigetsu) #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

This Thursday, October arrives, and the Harvest Moon comes with it! That’s right: the September Full moon shows up a tad late, and October will have a blue moon on Halloween–the Hunter Moon!

What better kigo can we ask for this week, haijin, but the Harvest Moon (meigetsu)? This week for Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge . I am entering a Tanka.

I am a hunter
By the moon, I prowl for souls.
On all hallows Eve.
They shall be mine for always
By the light of Hunter’s Moon

    Gorgeous and vaguely menacing. Just right for a blue moon Halloween.

    Hunting for life is one thing, but hunting for souls is truly chilling! Nicely done!
