midnight snack
at the kitchen window
a bite out of the moon

Midnight soon, having a visit in Lappland and half-eaten moon trying to sail as nothing special ever happening ...

time to sleep -
someone bit off
half of the moon

The bite was heard. And somewhere there is the sound of a kitchen door, but psssssst ... fine haiku.
