Thank you, Catherine, for hosting this week's round-up at Reading to the Core https://readingtothecore.wordpress.com/.
Catherine inspires me to blend science and poetry. Today, I saw some photos that took my breath away. I had never heard of a moonbow. It seemed like a beautiful but made-up term. However, moonbows are real! I knew I had to learn about them...which led me to look for poetry in my learning.
Enjoy some found haiku with these incredible photos from lake Ontario in New York State. Words found at https://sciencemadefun.net/blog/the-science-of-moonbows/
the sky must be dark
raining opposite the moon
a lunar rainbow

fainter than rainbows
the smaller amount of light
a moonbow is rare
