Twas a poem and yes you can!

Did y’all see the big new moon?
Twas on Saturday evening not at noon!
Twas very bright and very round!
Twas high up in the skies not making a sound!

Charlie says: I have booger in my eye.

Bloggie friends – thanks to lovely Summer Ross, Womagwriter and Eliza for publicising a great opportunity to donate stories, flash, poems, photos etc towards a new e-book “New Sun Rising" - all proceeds to go to a chosen charity to assist with the earthquake relief for Japan.

If y’all interested, here is the link and all the info about this project. Go on write story, take a pic, and/or compose a poem! You know you want to!

I am deep into composing some (hopefully not so terrible) haikus for submission. So I may be scarce this week cos these little nuggets of poetry are so damned hard to get right! No rhyming!! Aaaargh!

Kittie,
lovely poem...and poor Charlie, I hate when Angel Kitty gets boogers in her eyes and won't let me get it out...
thanks for the link for the e-book; I'll check it out!

KarenMcG said...

Old Kitty, good for you. I just know you'll get it right.

And Charlie? How'd you get something in your eye?

Thanks for your input at Kittens 'n Things about your little kitty who'd dig and dig in the box.

To answer your poem. Me thinks you know that I saw that there big ol' 'supermoon' and that howling Penny dawg, howled a little bit louder, y'all :-)
I shall go and check that link.
And Charlie, Penny wonders if you ever write your own blogs? She reckons you and her would make quite the writing team :)
Take care eh,

Hi Kitty,
Yes, I saw the gorgeous full moon on Saturday. It was amazing! No wonder you got inspired to write a cute poem about it ;)

Ann Best said...

I love haiku. I've written quite a few. Yes, they do take time--they have to be so exact. I'm excited to see what you come up with!!

Theresa Milstein said...

I looked for the moon but coudn't find it. Cloud cover. And then I got too lazy to return outside later.

Looks like you got inspired by your sighting!

I hope you had a good weekend.

Bossy Betty said...

Cheri said...

Fun poem about the supermoon! Great fund raisng idea! Hi to Charlie!

KarenG said...

I've been hearing about this moon everywhere, seeing pictures of it and all that. Not sure where I was because I don't remember a thing!

Guinevere said...

Very cool - I'm going to check out the anthology.

And I did get out to see the moon - I was proud of myself because usually I plan to do stuff like that and forget until the next day! lol

Manzanita said...

Lots a luck with your writing. No rhyming??? Leaves me out. Look at Charlie with the green grass background. Spring has really spung.

Mr Puddy said...

I saw the big moon and Lucky I didn't hear any wild wolf !

Brigid said...

Lovely poem, thanks for the links, a great project.

Madeleine said...

Fun poem. No I didn't see the moon last night. :O)

Kea said...

Good luck with the haikus. I hope the e-book raises lots of money for aid to Japan.

The most incredible full moon I can remember seeing was back when I still lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I can remember driving along the Bedford Basin and watching it, HUGE and yellow, hanging over the horizon/water. It was incredible. It might have been a super moon then too, as it easily was 18 or 20 years ago.

Brian said...

We got to see that super moon over our way too, it was beautiful! Good luck on your entry!!! Come on Charlie, it's playtime!!!

Marg said...

Hope your week of composing goes well. Can't wait to read the results.
Great poem about the moon. It has been a gigantic moon. Charley, you take it easy and get that stuff out of your eye. Take care.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie - you look very fine is your lovely sunshine - have you been visiting your local ladycats??
We hope your writing will go well and you will write a great piece for the book.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Clarissa Draper said...

Sounds like a great way to support Japan. Love the poem--I did see the moon but it didn't look much bigger to me.

Tara said...

Just dropping in to say mornin' to Charlie :)

Ellie said...

Hehe. I loved to your supermoon poem and have just tweeted a link to it!

I was thinking of doing some Haikus for the New Sun Rising. Great minds and all that. LOL.

Margo Berendsen said...

Yes I did see that big old moon, he was a little misty last night. I think today is the day the Write Hope writers' auction for Japan starts too, at Http://rachaelharrie.blogspot.com.

I love haikus! (reading them, that is, NOT writing them) :)

Tony Benson said...

I love the Moon poem. We were planning to photograph it. The previous evening it was spectacular, but on the full moon evening it was cloudy, and has been since. Neaaarrrgh! No photo. Still, lots of people have taken great photos. Love 'em.

Great to see you supporting the appeals. We all want to do our bit.

Saw the moon
But not very much
To us down here it looked like slush

Too many clouds
Not enough beams
Give me a clear night
With lots of lots of moony dreams.

My snores don't rhyme so I wouldn't worry that much...
hiya Charlie .
lots of luv Amie Soto Blossom :-)x x x

The Golden Eagle said...

I didn't see the supermoon--I had no idea there was even a full moon. :P I love the poem, though!

Thank you so much for the link! Good luck with your haikus.

Summer Ross said...

You will get it right and have something wonderful to submit! Best of Luck with it!

Great picture of Charlie. I didn't get to see the moon- busy in papers, but I liked the poem about it!

Talli Roland said...

I did see it! It was high in the sky and shiny in the canals of Bruges.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Good luck with your Haiku writing. I'm sure Charlie has some great ideas for you! :-)

Margo Benson said...

Yes, the Moon was wonderful (if a little watery in these parts!)

Go you with the Haiku!

Thanks for your support with my 200!

Ginger Jasper said...

I am sure you will be able to pen some good rhymes. I like the one today.. The moon was huge and dad got some good pictures.. Hugs GJ x

Lydia K said...

It's such a great idea, isn't it?

I love your moon poem!

ABBY said...

Good luck with the haikas!

Hello sweet Charlie, did you like the full moon? Mom has one of her pictures up tomorrow of what she saw.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I find haiku terribly hard to write but so lovely to read. I'm sure you will write some wonderful ones, Jen.

I went out to take photos of the super moon but there is too much street light in my neighborhood at night and my photos were blurry. Guess I'll have to wait 23 more years for the next photo op! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Crap, totally forgot about the moon!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...
