Daily Haibun – May 26th


It’s been pouring rain all day. Grey, windy and wet.
Making me want to light a fire in the hearth and
curl up on the sofa with a good Gothic ghost story.

Wind blown sheets of rain
Tears chilling both heart and bone
I seek warmth with you

Been pondering something small I can write daily for some time now. Something that allows me to be both poetic and personal. So decided to try Haibun’s for a while. Let me know what you think.

“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

For more information on the Haibun form read this article on poets.org or the Wikipedia entry.
