Today's note - moon

There is a custom of moon viewing held in mid-autumn called tsukimi widely celebrated in Japan. It's said that this moon viewing custom was introduced to Japan from China. Tsukimi happens on the night when the moon is the brightest and the most beautiful in the year.

In the neoclassical writings when moon is stated, it is this beautiful harvest moon that is intimated; and there are several other named moons written into haiku. The moon is definitely a favored haiku topic for all haijin

I invite you to share some of your expertise on moon with me
