night flight north
the moon catches on my wing
for a moment


"I place these moments in my pocket
to be pulled
at the rush of noon,
the crush of three...
when tears come,
when words must learn to be enough..." MKL

Willhill, Steve
Charlie, thank you so much for the welcome back; it seems that my time has been taken up by so many other things, recently! I had the occasion to take single prop airplane flight at night not too long ago and it was an amazing experience for me. Eerily beautiful... and obviously, it inspired this haiku!

Thank you for reading this and even more for commenting on it.


You are already on my list of favorites; I love the simple grace of your haiku, it is a pleasure to read, certainly. I look forward to future offerings, myself.

Thank you for your kind comments.

Regards and respect to you both,

You sure know how to wing these haikus (ahem, no pun intended LOL). I enjoy seeing what you come up with. I enjoy reading your work.

Thank you for such a lovely comment! I appreciate it, dear Lady!

i remember
Night Flight was also a feature on the USA Network on cable. Every Sat night they'd feature a singer or an actor, dig up all the rare stuff and that would be an anthological marathon way into the night.
The haiku that instills sensations of the memories. That's also accordingto the definition of art found in Tolstoy's What is Art?

Melind's haiku
Isn't this just what haiku is about - that observed moment that catches our imagination. And you have great haiku observation skills. well done. huni.

Tef, Huni

Teflon, you know, I've never had cable... I live beyond its worldly reach by several miles.
It sounds like an interesting program, though. I'm glad that this instilled sensations of a memory... Good to have you here!

Huni, hello, dear!

Thank you for your warm praise; I'm honored!

Regards to you both,
