Summer Door ~ #016 May 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for Red Wolf Poems Wordle Prompt #18

©14 Summer Door 2 sml 6x


Dream Castings


ah. living on the crushed edge. suits me. like sleep beneath a thousand trees. this idleness. a mind rest. meditation. in this fragile world of words. the tea we sip. from a wooden cup. each red door. becomes. my own. thin entrance. into dawn. I stir. the apple stains. a dark hole. cut. in white cloth. each kiss. a truth. these shivers. my song. a hope. sent to the sky. driving one. camel. and then another. easily. through the eye. of each needle. into the resinous hold. of ancient ships. memory. holding tight to lines. along the ditch. where monkeys sit. in green foam. enlightened. perhaps. who knows? living on. this crushed edge. within my skull.

a reflection
this summer wind
another door

My response to the Wordle Prompt #18 May 22, 2014 on the Red Wolf Poems blog.

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.
