Seedlings #014 May 2014 Haiga and SciFi Vision-Dream Haibun for Sunday Photo Fiction

Human Seeding


27 ships in 30 days. Earth evacuated. ten thousand humans per ship.

the caveat: each passenger had to swim. unaided. to the ship. bringing only what that one passenger could carry. on the long swim.

Earth would then be readied. for the next inhabitants. the next level. of human occupancy.

we had the directive slightly wrong. three ships landed. all with initial colony beings. once the planet was sufficiently tamed. organized. the next level of humans would arrive.

from the original inhabitants new settling colonies would be sent. to other planets. we now had the technology. materials. and know-how. to build new transport ships. from the things already made on Earth.

new colony ships would land. on a raw planet. no electricity. or the modern stuff of our Earth. we’d have to tame a planet. with what we could carry. swimming. to the transport ship—plus an assortment. of plants and animals.

the remaining planet dwellers. were evacuated. using a bio-net. i don’t know much about that.

my ship’s captain was Noah19.

and the only proof I have. of ever having been on the planet Earth. is this photograph. of my ship launch platform. being built at sea.

a new garden
this fragrant breeze
my foot path

This is my response to the Sunday Photo Fiction photo May 18, 2014 prompt.

My response is in the form of haiga and haibun. Two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.

  • Haibun is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.
  • Haiga is image which includes haiku as a part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
