Unseen Mystery

The prompt from One Deep Spirit last week was around the mystery of nature. This week the prompt expands to the unseen mystery.

Gentle leading wind
Singing songs long forgotten
Who will join the dance?

Invisible veil
Dancing atop the tree boughs
Gibbous moon watches

I like them both. As I was reading and re-reading my mind switched the two last lines, and they still work.

Mike, you're right, I could switch them. Interesting.

Wonderful haiku, both! And that's the second time recently I've seen the word "gibbous" in a poem. Lovely!

These are both lovely, but that first one is just sublime!

I love the word "gibbous" - I think I saw it in another haiku a while back (probably the same place paris parfait saw it!)

Welcome to the worlds of haiku and blogging!

Lovely haiku both - I love the watching moon especially.
