Haiku...

Oh! I forgot. Here's a little "cheesy" (#2 definition) haiku.

I was driving back from Trammel Fork Creek (a trout stream in the southwest of my secret location) and the moon was just rising, very low in the sky, about 3/4 full and just above the long, straight highway and a strange color because of the atmosphere... "the man in the moon" seemed to be looking down on the highway and there were almost no other cars.

my lonely drive home

PS: don't worry, everybody. I'll write in Japanese again when I return to Japan soon (if I don't forget how to write Japanese!?!)

どう?
It was enjoyable to make japanese version! i know I have to make better! give me a little more time .. and I ll make perfect japanese version.

anyway ....
I really really love your Haiku.
very deep feeling. loneliness, strangeness,back home,alone, beautifull, quiet, long road alone, moon like a mom or a woman watching your way, sometimes moon symborize mother or woman, 安心感、せつなさ... 味わい深いです。

Thanks for the Japanese version!

I'd read that "easterners" see a rabbit in the moon. "Westerners" see a man in the moon.

Also, American children draw the sun yellow, while Japanese children draw the sun as red. Wonder if it's true?!
