Carpe Diem Special-Only The First Line: “Hunger Moon”


hunger moon
stomach growls – wolf on the hunt
child dreams of next meal

For Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special’s “Only The First Line”. In this challenge, Chevrefeuille gives a line that must be used as the first line in our haiku. The first line this time is “Hunger Moon.” From Chevrefeuille: “Hunger Moon” is the name of the full moon of January as it is mentioned inThomas’s Old Farmers Almanac (founded in 1792). During this month the wolves once roamed the countryside, thus suggesting the name wolf moon. In cold and temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, it was difficult to find food during January, thus the name hunger moon.

Head over to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special and check out this and other special challenges to help inspire your haiku.

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!
