naviarhaiku299 – moonset


a sudden vastness
between stars

Here's another haiku by award-winning poet an'ya, who is also the author of the poem we used for our 290th Haiku challenge.

The pen name “an’ya” loosely translates into “a peaceful surprise light in the moonless night”. Though nowadays she writes mostly tanka, in 2011 an’ya was voted one of the top ten haiku poets in the world by Simply Haiku. If you want to find out more about an'ya's poetry, there's an interesting article about her on Aha Poetry written by Ty Hadman
