Chasing High Tide

There is nothing more beautiful than full moon light riding on ocean waves. As fall comes on, and tourists crawl back into their cocoons, the lunar cycle continues with two full moons in the month of October. The Harvest Moon comes on the first and the Blue Moon comes on the thirty-first.

Paintings – Dwight L. Roth

Tonight at d”Verse Frank Tassone asked us to write our Monday Haibun using the moon as our prompt. Two full moons are happening this year in the month of October. I took two of my paintings and changed them into black and white for effect.

  1. There is so much beauty in moonlight cresting the waves as they rush towards the shore. Your poem and the beautiful painting captured it perfectly. Monochrome shows the accents of moonlight very well in the painting, a very peaceful scene ๐Ÿ’–

  2. Oh yes, I havenโ€™t seen it in a long while, Dwight, but I agree, ‘there is nothing more beautiful than full moon light riding on ocean wavesโ€™. I miss living next to the sea, although this weekend it would have been terrifying with the storm and gales.
