The Quickness of Time

Written for:  dVerse Poets (provided by Bjorn Rudberg)
Write a haibun.
The form combines prose with a haiku poem.

Life was moving at carnival ride speed. She tried to get off, pick a slower ride–maybe the merry-go-round.  Filling days with fun projects took her mind off hitting the finish line, but time still flew by on the wings of birds. At night, in quiet darkness, she cannot sleep. Her mind clicks on and off, like a light switch. Should she do more, or less. She wonders if there is a better way to live her life.

Morning of new day
Laughter of children playing
See time as endless

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I can identify with the problem you express here – is it better to do more or to do less? Like you I missed the cut off time for the link – here’s my haibun if you want to take a look.
