Daily Haibun, August 13th – Inner calm


Yesterday’s stargazing was well worth it. Even if it meant sacrificing a bit of sleep. I saw several meteors streak across the sky.

Can’t remember the last time I sat bundled in a warm blanket doing nothing but listen to night sounds and watch the starry sky. Today I felt an inner calm reminiscent of what you get from meditation. I’ve also felt energised. Like the stargazing replenished something I didn’t even know was missing.

Daily Haibun, August 12th – The Perseids


Tonight I’m stargazing. Hoping for a glimpse of the Perseids. While jotting down snatches of words that one day will end up in a story or poem.
