Poetic Musings: Glassy Lake Haiku by Debbie Strange

Commentary by the judge, Bruce Ross

Many haiku have been written about the effect of moonlight and the moon's reflection. This haiku is unique and highly poetic in its expression.

And the later-added photo successfully turns the haiku into an effective  haiga, not only heightening the visual focus of the haiku but also lacing itself into the reader's imagination.
