  1. Who I wonder does see the moon, as well as the fireworks? The poet did. This hokku brings to mind in spirit the words attributed to Basho: “A haiku is like a finger pointing to the moon.
    If the finger is bejeweled, we no longer see the moon.”

  2. The full moon and the fireworks! This is a marvellous contrast between the stillness and quiet of the moon and the explosion of sound and light from the fireworks!
