(5-7-5)

Sun meets the water

her dangerous thoughts linger

cheeks blush like the sky

(3-5-3)

sun kissed sea

cheeks blush like the sky

dangerous

(2-3-2)

sunset

dangerous

cheeks blush

A Mother’s Guilt – An Erased #Haibun

I close my eyes. The guilt presses against my skull. Blood pounds the base drum in my ears. I try to breathe, but a noise pulls the trigger and rage convulses out of the monster‘s mouth. Their confusion shines through giant brown mirrors that reflect the ugly creature before them.

 

tears spill

moments slip away

defeated

 

hands

press against

my eyes

(breathe)

until the monster

is no longer a giant

and the mirrors reflect

how I want to be

Autumn – Troiku

bare branches

a jungle gym for birds

wings all aflutter

leaves under my feet                                                         gathering in piles

leaves under my feet

a satisfying crunch

This attempt at a troiku is in response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #31 Troiku … “bare branches”

A troiku starts with a base haiku, then you create three new haiku where each line of the base haiku is the first line in each of the new haiku.

I quite enjoyed learning this new form. 🙂

recharging lost energy
