Haibun: Half-moon

Half-moon. The eighth day in the lunar calendar. When the moon is a semicircle it is almost unreadable. It lies suspended in the middle of the sky enclosed in an air of mystery.

I do not mind the night with a half-moon. A perfect setting for a paranormal mystery or a forbidden romance. A facet illuminated and one kept secret, the moon has a way of hinting that one must intuit, one must try to sense the abstract. That not all the cards need to be fanned out and stated plainly, some things must be kept private.

a semicircle
neither a soft gibbous moon
nor a crescent sharp

half-past night I still 
Shrouded thoughts; unreadable 
gloaming calls within
