Moon Viewing Haiku

Dottie, the mascot and editor-in-chief of the Haiku Bandit Society, has determined the three best Moon Viewing Party poems for the month of August, 2012.

I'm honored to announce that this was one of the three. For more details, and to meet Dottie, go to


summer solitude
nothing between

Thank you, Monika. I felt pretty good about this one, and Dottie has impeccable taste. Also, a good sense of smell.

one happy-moon for you, bill:
