the moon laughs like a great
fat buddha in the sky
now let me get this straight
the moon laughs like a great
joke has been told but wait
October raindrops cry
the moon laughs like a great
fat buddha in the sky

  7. Love October…right as Autumn slips right over us and takes us captive.

    • Yes, it has the beauty of the leaves without September’s nostalgia for summer.

  11. Really thought the form worked well in the context of the question/answer nature of the poem. The stop and start implied by using ‘wait’ helps clarify the narrators context considerably. Thanks for posting through Thursday Poetry Rally, dug your poem.

  12. The moon laughs and so do I. What a lovely, joyous thought you bring to us with this poem. I can see it in my minds eye again and again and it makes me smile. Even October’s tears cannot stop my smile. Who knows? Maybe October’s tears are tears of joy. Peace, Sharie

  26. I now have a picture in my head of the Buddha laughing at me from the night sky. Your poem is short and simple, but the words create such detailed imagery in the mind. :)
