lunar eclipse--
the couple kisses
under the street light

    power failure
    ... act three in the dark
    northern lights

    The cosmic activity of the sun and the moon resonates well with the romantic scene of the couple under the streetlight. So much is conveyed in just a few words.

    sneaking away
    from the moon-viewing:
    lovers' shadows

    this poem was brillant.

    candle flickering
    arms open wide
    whispers softly

    Nice haiku, Chris. Glad you're upholding the good old college spirit of using any excuse to steal a kiss. (Maybe that was only the spirit of my college days in the 50s.)

    day moon,
    a luna moth
    naps a bit

    cooing doves--
    from the darkness
    a smack
