full moon--
all by itself
above city lights

by mother's bed
a mosquito coil
slowly burns

a swarmer
crawls on the keyboard--
one haiku

Hi, Juan! A swarmer is like an ant with wings. I think it is also some kind of a termite. When they come out, usually they are very many, flying around a lamp or lightbulb or flourescent light. At the time I worte the haiku, there was just a few of them, one of which landed and crawled over the keyboard of my laptop whilw I was composing a haiku.

The world is full of 'full-moon' haikus, but still you got something new!

Full moon
is watching
the city life
