Jane's Poetry Challenge #28

I’ve been following Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge with the intent to join in, but time always seems to get away from me. Well, guess what? Here I am, ready to participate. Better late than never, I suppose.
Her weekly challenge (which you can find here) offers 5 challenge words (winding – moonlight – follow – heavily – path) as well as this painting by Edvard Munch:
edvard_munch_-_moonlight_1893
I played around with the challenge words, trying to piece them together to form a haiku, but failed to use the painting as inspiration:
Rain falls heavily
I follow the winding path
In search of moonlight
When I gave up on writing a Haiku, I came up with this:
He watches
Always standing at the gate
A silent ghost in the moonlight
No escape
I gaze out the window 
A heavily wooded forest surrounds me
He beckons
Spellbound, I follow the ghostly shape
Down a winding path that leads to nowhere
