beneath the fiery moon
with a nightly sheen
sister of the sun god
ruling the sky
ready with her bow
ethereal goddess shoots-
echoes the cry of prey
the virgin lady once stood
with her huntress gaze
For Carpe Diem # 330.

I love this. I am experimenting with these and I am finding that it is quite an exercise in using less words to say what you mean.
Yes, it is hard to keep control of the words in the starting.
There is one thing to remember- a good haiku must always capture a moment or an image. I am sometimes lax in that regard but I try. 🙂
And if you want a daily exercise, I am holding a monthly day to day prompt at my haiku site- A Haiku A Day. Though only a few days are left, I’d be glad if you participate. 🙂
Thanks, I did not know about that site 🙂
you know… i find her fascinating….she looks just and in command of what she’s doing… a good place to be…
These are wonderful! 🙂
Wonderful series HA … you’ve made it into a short story in honor of Artemis.
nice…i like how you really ground this back into reality in that last stanza….
it ties the stories and legends in nicely….
you have honored this intriguing goddess…
An interesting look at the goddess…
honorable series so well written. lovely set.
This was a nice foray into the goddess… the combo of moon and hunt and beauty makes poetry.
