Moonlit Dance

-Art & A Haiku-


When moonlight dances,
A gentle song ere day breaks,
Evening comes alive.


I’ve been thinking about this one for a few days now, after seeing Ronovan Write’s Haiku Challenge: Break & Dance. My main goal here was putting the image together – and it took me the better part of the day.

I needed a break from the story, and I love the energy of this woman. I need some of that!

The original that was used as the basis was so beautiful that it was hard to tell if it was a painting or a photograph – I think it may have been a book cover. I’m so happy with this one – it might even end up framed. I’ll have to see how it prints. Anyway…

The haiku has several meanings, and one of them is my tendency to be a ‘night owl’. All day long I yawn, and want to take it easy, and then… when the clock strikes midnight… it feels like morning again. So weird. Lately though, even my night time energy is low. I’m starting to worry that 60 is the new 80. Sheesh!

Anyway, that’s about all for now. I hope you enjoyed the art and haiku… and I hope that your evening, or your morning, is like a moonlit dance.

Until next time,
Peace & Love.


“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

  1. Beautiful work of art and lovely haiku.

    The haiku and language used is like what Shakespeare would have written had he written haikus.

    And your sketch reminds me of the work done by a mid to late 20th Century Spanish painter called Gomperez.
