  1. What a brilliant picture of a wolf!

    How lovely to see something written by Barbara Rogers. Congratulations on capturing the essence of the January full moon in so few words πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Rosie – sometimes a haiku comes crawling down my sleeve, other times it’s a challenge. πŸ™‚ The full wolf moon has been so riveting the past couple of nights…

    1. How wonderful that your grandson is an avid moon gazer, Amy-Lynn! The moon has been one of my best friends since I was a child and it would follow our car all the way home to Connecticut from my grandparents’ house on Cape Cod. πŸ™‚

  2. Do you know Tracy Brooks? Imagine capturing such a beautiful sight on camera, it would be a photographers dream. Your words accompanying the photo are perfect Barbara. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Joanne. I do not know Tracy Brooks – she is one of the amazing nature photographers working for the US Fish & Wildlife Service. The images found at its National Digital Library are in the public domain and I check in there frequently looking for photos to use here. I’ve seen documentaries showing how nature photographers get their amazing shots – they spend many hours or even days waiting and waiting for some of the animals to appear!

    1. Thank you, Rufina. The wolf does seem very calm, cool and collected – confident of his sacred place in the order of things…

  3. Yes, lovely to see something you wrote, Barbara. The haiku is such a succinct but descriptive form and you have used it beautifully. I love it and have shared on my FB author page.

    1. Thank you so much, Diane! I still remember learning about haiku in middle school and didn’t realize until recently that there are other forms beside the 5-7-5 syllable model I learned about in class…

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
