Bright Flower Moon – A Haibun

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.”

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
