More Moon Haiku Variations

More Moon Haiku Variations

The wild geese come back,
and so does the moon—but don’t
count on my return

Clouds disappear—so
does the moon—but not the gull’s
wild sorrowing cry

The clouds go away,
the moon never stays—only
sorrow is constant

The blue skies return
and the moon always comes back—
and so does sorrow

Sweet clover, yellow
buttercups, the moon, they all
return—where are you?
