Oh, how I longed for
magic returning under
the bright flower moon
The trees are that verdant spring green.
The fields are bursting with wildflowers.
The fiery passionate energy of spring is all around.
Buds bursting, animals mating, migratory birds sing their joy of returning to the lands of pale lighted summer nights.
Lifting the dark moods of winter, inviting renewal, change and growth.
Waking the song of lust and passion in my heart and soul.
Oh, how i wished for
a dream to become real
Now doubt, is it true?
Written for tonight’s Haibun prompt over at dVerse. Haibun Monday 5-24-21: Flower moon.
“The Haibun form consists of one to a few paragraphs of prose—usually written in the present tense—that evoke an experience and are often non-fictional/autobiographical. They may be preceded or followed by one or more haiku—nature-based, using a seasonal image—that complement without directly repeating what the prose stated.”from dVerse

Spring is an awakening for all!
Oh, I feel the quickening of Spring in the exuberence of your poetic prose. Oh, how the haiku accent it so eloquently, too! Brava!
Haiku as book ends; clever. I love working in haiku and tanka into my poetic style. d’Verse has provided me over the years with an enrichment to my free style.
Dreams and longing two recurring themes when the moon roubds her way into our hearts
Beautifully done… Yes the dream of spring has finally arrived. Great Haibun!
Your poem resonates. Til the frolicky frisky season. I love it when dreamland takes me where I want to go.
Til = Tis
I love the shape of your haibun. Helene, and the bookends of ‘Oh, how I longed for’ and ‘Oh, how I wished for’, the magic and the dream. You’ve painted a picture of a beautiful spring landscape, with not just one but two haiku.
This is so full of the joys of spring! I never thought of evoking the moon in daytime, but how perfectly befitting of a flower moon :-)
The energy of renewal! I loved this. My haibun also grasped that awakening. Cheers!
Love that opening haiku.
Spring is definitely in the air – lovely haibun.
I feel the energy of spring in my veins… maybe that is how the trees are feeling as well.
