One shimmering eye
stares at me through the window.
Don’t leave me, sweet moon.

This is full of meaning, I love the imagery, the sweetness and brightness, yet somehow such intensity, really beautiful.

that was beautiful. it totally stood out in the sea of all other haikus. it takes real talent to be able to grab somebody's attention with 17 syllables. keep at it!

Very nice. A beautiful haiku, personification, and of course a nice array of verbal imagery. I like it.
