The Moons of Autumn: A Wordcraft Journal of Syllabic Verse
The Moons of Autumn: Word Weaving #1, A Wordcraft Journal of Syllabic Verse, a collection of syllabic poetry, edited by Colleen M. Chesebro & JulesPaige, is now available in print and for Kindle.
I am thrilled and honored to have two of my haiku (3-5-3) included in this collection celebrating the Moons of Autumn. Colleen sponsors the weekly poetry challenge, Tanka Tuesday. This week is Poet's Choice, so I am sharing the two haiku from the book for that, as well as for Writers' Pantry #91.

Nanna is the Norse goddess associated with the moon. It is also the name of the Mesopotamian god of the moon, however, I am referring to the goddess in the poem.
Falling Leaf Moon is another name for the Blood Moon in October.
Winterfylleth is the Old English name for October.
I loved your haiku, and the background notes.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! The book sounds enticing, and I'll be grabbing it as soon as it comes out on Kindle.
Thank you. :) The Kindle is available from the Kindle link above. Print and digital have two different links.Delete
What a glorious tribute to Word Weaving. We enjoyed your poetry! Thanks so much for being part of this journey. <3ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for including me! It's very exciting to be published for the first time!Delete
Such a little poem that teaches much! I now know more about Norse goddesses, the Blood Moon, and the old English name for October...and I'm so happy they changed it, winterfylleth is impossible to spell!!ReplyDelete
It is a bit much! It's fun to learn about origins and myths, at least I find it so.Delete
Thank you! :)Delete
These are beautiful, Lisa! The first one sings (and howls) right into my soul. Nanna (from Mesopotamian mythology) is a god I've always felt rather strongly about. I know you're referring to the Norse goddess in this one. Still, it's good to see Nanna inked your poetry.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. We could howl to either or both Nannas! Mythology is so fascinating. Roman and Greek get all the publicity!Delete
Your haiku are lovely ... congratulations!!!!ReplyDelete
What gorgeous words for moons and diety.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much! There are such pretty names for the moons, old ones. And the deities are fascinating to me.Delete
