Dear Snappy Repartee: Full Moon too! I love this Haiku. And I'll bring the veggie casserole for the Potluck! Looks like the tree is indeed pointing to 11:30 pm. Nearing that bewitching hour of the full harvest moon! I guess we had 2 harvest moons, or this moon has another name...as the moon peacefully sets as endless and timeless peace and piece de la resistance! And as your Most Excellent Haiku - delicious!

I like your interpretation of the photo - tree branch clock below the stars - very nice indeed! And 'peace' is so often what I think when I see moon like that... Thank you for this.
