  1. It is kind of you to post.
    Sorry, but I cannot find much in this haiku, though, to inspire me or to lead me into a poetic experience.

I am probably being too dull and not reading enough between the lines, though. Perhaps the hint of auspice is what you wanted to emphasise?

  2. I feel the feeling of relief after the threat, the sense of achievement the full moon gives : 満月や…
    If the poet is a stranger in Oregon, the new full moon reminds (him/her) the peace and fulfilment of distant home…
