As the sun kisses the earth it draws frigid air back to the night. The afternoon’s heat now a dream I wish would linger a while longer.
Tangerine and blood
set fire to winter’s grasp
new life take hold
This micro haibun (less than 55 words) is in response to dVerse Haibun Monday
Prompt: “A Japanese word, CHIJITSU, means LINGERING DAY, or LONG SPRING DAY: a Kigo that, in a way, can apply to both Spring and Autumn—one that invites poets from both hemispheres to write a Haibun from their unique perspective. That is our prompt for today’s Haibun. You may choose to use it in reference to a season, or even metaphorically.”
I am learning how to write haibun. Constructive criticism and helpful insight are welcome and appreciated.
