Passage ~ #001 July 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for We Wordle Prompt #21

Journey Fourth (7-4-2014)


a scattering of green. crystalline leaf flicker. along the lane. I turn. car wheels. on gravel. the sound. of traffic. an unseen crow. a lullaby greeting. exhausted. dehydrated. I approach. the God bucket center. of a summer journey. Goose Pond.

shining. shimmering. in the damp. pre-hurricane air. this gray. opalescent. surface. the afternoon light. through arched. swaying. branches. pitch pine and black and white oak. over kettle pond water.

unopened secrets. sacred. each visit. to Goose Pond.

the smell of fish. a red canoe. the only boat. on shore.

a red maple. ground planted. once. bonsai. intended.

my body aches. in this moment. it is a kindness. to begin writing. planting my verse. near a pearl. Goose Pond.

in the thick. cloud blackened. night. a silence. louder. than the heavy air. my ears ring. air travel vibration. horses. crossing. a loose plank bridge. I awaken. knots in my legs. seeking. a sip. of waterlily heaven. a sip. of water. on Goose Pond.

a sip of water
in the black crow silence
