Contrast

curdled clouds
scatter phantom shapes
…humpbacked moon

Stunning picture. Creepy kinda. :)

I like the picture, it looks like an eye.

I'll have my haiku for this week posted tomorrow.

Quite an evocative 'ku; very fitting for tonight's full moon!

Hello Sue,

I apologize for the spamlike comment, but I’m soliciting submissions for the Ringing of the Bards poetry blog carnival, August 11th.
You can find more details at my blog.

All poems are welcome, but I'm highlighting religious and spiritual poetry this month.

Whether you submit or not, please come by and visit the carnival!

Left me breathless. I expected to see something slide out from behind the moon.
