Fluid phases of
moon, swinging the tide in a
vast ocean of moods!

The waxing and waning of the moon is known to be primarily responsible for the rising and falling of ocean tides. The moon cycle is also known to effect our emotions, moods and energy levels to some extent. Hence, there might be some correlation between the phases of moon, the choices we make and the actions we take.

The Haiku is written based on the prompt Tide given by TJ’s Household Haiku

A Haiku is a Japanese poem consisting of 17 syllables in 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first and third lines and 7 in the second.




Lei: A wreath for your soul  is a string of short poems reflecting on nature, life, illusion and inspiration.Lei

  1. Beautiful haiku. I agree with this. In fact, “lunacy” comes from the latin word luna, meaning moon. A full moon is also supposed to send pregnant women into labor and make nursing home residents more agitated. According to ancient philosophers, the moon affects human behavior and health by its gravitational pull on body fluids.
