Pewter Landscape – tanka

summer photograph –
pewter moonlight monochrome
ghostly landscape sleeps,
the full moon is the watch dog
guarding the shadows of night.

    Oh goodness, I love this, Toni–‘specially that you use “pewter”, a fave word of mine.

    Love this ethereal scene, lines blurred, melting one into the other, hazy and hypnotic.
    “pewter moonlight monochrome” says it all.
    You DO paint lightly but surely, Kanzen. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Oh this sounds so exotic.. you know this far north we never see the moon in summer. I think this could be in late August.

      This far south, we see the moon all year. Sometimes, it is so huge and bright, you could drive or do other things by moonlight. In mh reckless youth, it was a cool thing to drive through Duke Forest (part of Duke U campus) without the headlights on. Very very sparse traffic and the road itself reflected the moonlight. It was both a surreal and romantic thing to do.
