Pure Haiku’s theme this trimester is “Celestial Bodies”. I have to admit, I struggled a bit with this one. My haiku tend to be inspired by things I’ve experienced in the natural world – and, well, I’ve never been to outer space. I did however manage to spit out an acceptable haiku 🙂


alien city

a golden moon embraces

needles of black glass
