Summer Waves – Haibun

Written In Response To:

Frank J. Tassone Haikai Challenge (6/8/19):  fragrant breeze (kunpuu) – This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to a fragrant breeze (kunpuu). And even though it has already passed, you may also allude to the 75th D-Day Anniversary.

Spring path.

Oftentimes we have summer in our soul and at other times we do not depending on our “spiritual seasons.”  And for some depending on where they live they get to enjoy a whole entire season of summer outside. But for some of us who live in a different type of area, even though the season is called “summer” the weather contradicts the definition of that word.  Then when there is an actual summer day, warm with calm winds, because of trials inside it is the dead of Winter. But the good news is if the soul clings tight to Hope’s surfboard and breathes the waves will hush because it embraced the dark shadow, redeemed it and so becomes whole to once again have summer in the soul…which is the good that always comes from each and every season embraced.

A Vagabond Soul

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Vagabond

Your Daily Word Prompt May 16, 2019 – Fortitude

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #87 – I give you a choice between two pictures. You can choose any one, or write two separate pieces for both, and link up.

I am using both photos for one piece.

A vagabond soul travels down dark corridors

seeking to find her purpose in this life

though year after year no answers come and

every so often she stops to look outside the window

to watch the people below on the streets enjoying…

friends, family, lovers…engaging life to the full

with a purpose for living, loving, and being loved…

she is happy for them but can’t help crying inside

wondering why she was never given these blessings

yet…in the depths of her sorrow she finds the

fortitude to continue to keep pressing on in the

hope that these blessings will one day be hers too

even though no one has ever taught her about hope

and has really never had a reason to hope since childhood

still, it is there, deep in her core as she has survived

a design for her life that has not been her desire,

her dream for the last two-thirds of her life and

she cannot help but ask…Has this hope led her astray?
