I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."

Eerily flaming
Rising into Earth’s night sky
Rare parigee moon
Marie Elena

Photos by Keith R. Good

Keith captured these vastly different photos of the March 19, 2011 "supermoon" above the Maumee River.   


  1. Great hiaku - and nice shots of the moon! I was waiting, camera in hand, but the cloud cover was too thick to even catch a glimpse of moonlight.

  2. Wow, you're quick on the draw, Elizabeth! That's too bad about the cloud cover. We got lucky here in NW Ohio. Keith didn't get the shots he really wanted, but I like these just fine. =)

  3. Nothin' but cloud cover on this end as well. As always, living vicariously through my "Good" friends out thataway! Nice shots, AGAIN!

  4. That's too bad, Walt. Patricia said the same thing. :( Keith isn't too pleased with the photos he took, but I'm not sure why. Just not what he envisioned, I suppose.

  5. Hello Marie Elena, Hello Keith,

    So glad you both were able to capture the "super" moon!
    Wonderful words and photo!

  6. What a beautiful capture, love both your haiku and picture. Glad to have discovered your blog, you have such a delicate touch within your poetry.Yelena.

  7. Patricia, you always make me smile. =)

    Yelena, what a lovely compliment. You humble me, especially after I checked your site and the beauty of your translated poetry gave me pause. May I ask how you found our blog?
