Random Thoughts, haibun

The snow, rough and windswept in places, makes my peaceful walk evaporate. At the park, thick ice seals the sky’s reflections on the pond, reminding me of the places in my heart where I hide the old draconian memories. Like shadows, I keep those emotions in the dark, so they never take hold. It’s time to cut the cord again. I move on.

This haibun is for #TankaTuesday where we were to choose at least three words from the random word list to write our poem. I used: reflective, rough, draconian, walk, evaporate, and cord.

This haibun also works for the dVerse prompt, where Frank Tassone asks us to write a haibun that references the heart, in whatever context that we conceive.

    1. Thank you, Sue. I’m working on cutting the cords to those old memories of the past. I don’t need that kind of self talk anymore. When those thoughts pop in, I’ve been pushing them away. 💜

  1. Effective use of visuals with the thick ice on the lake denying the reflection of the sky. It is a sealed off atmosphere in winter. We need this thing to wrap itself up so the blossoms can lift us again.

  2. We all have some chilling secrets – but I think if we warm ourselves up with our positive present loves we will be able to be enveloped with kindness that will radiate with brilliance!
