dancing with the stars (haiku)

In a surprise episode of Chèvrefeuille’s Make the Haiku Complete, the goal is to add the first and third lines to the given middle line to complete the haiku.

Cassiopeia,
dancing in the moonlight
seeking Eros

I thought it would be fun to choose two constellations that are best viewed in November such as Cassiopeia and Pisces. Cassiopeia, a vain beauty trying to catch Eros who is tied his mother Aphrodite…ha! good luck with that! I happen to be a Pisces as well and today is my son’s birthday.

The following text is from Art of Manliness discussing 15 Constellations Every Man Should Know.

Pisces:  Latin for “fish” (plural) Best viewed in: NovemberThe two fish of the sky represent Aphrodite and her son Eros, who turned themselves into fish and tied themselves together with rope in order to escape Typhon, the largest and most vile monster in all of Greek mythology. (Art of Manliness)

No Latin meaning, it’s the name of a queen in Greek mythology Best viewed in: November

Cassiopeia, in Greek mythology, was a vain queen who often boasted about her beauty. She was the mother of Princess Andromeda, and in contrast to other figures being placed in the sky in honor, Cassiopeia was forced to the heavenly realms as punishment. As the story goes, she boasted that her beauty (or her daughter’s, depending on the story) was greater than that of the sea nymphs. This was quite an offense, and she was banned to the sky for all to gawk at.  (Art of Manliness)

    1. Thanks so much, Kristjaan!! I’ve not had much time to visit and was so pleased to see this fun one.I will look over the prompts to see if I can incorporate a haibun or troibun (my new fav) that might include a bit of what Tournesol is up to lately.
