The Asian Lunar Calendar and Ceremonies

A lunar month started with no-moon, had the full moon on the 15th and 28 days to go.
The first lunar month of a year started the round of 12 months.
With the calendar reform in Japan, things changed, making the life of a haiku poet more difficult.

"The Creator told everyone of us in our tribal beginnings
to look after our ceremonies, and each other."
-- Barney Bush, SHAWNEE

Our ceremonies are important and each has a purpose.
They teach us about the Creator and about each other.
The ceremonies teach us to be humble and teach us to pray.
They teach us to look inside ourselves. We should remember to pray each morning.

Ask the Creator to guide our thinking. Think only good thoughts. Think good thoughts about our relatives and about our brothers and sisters.
Pray for our children in ceremony. Give thanks to the Great Mystery of life.
All life is sacred.
Pray in a sacred way.
