Written for: dVerse Poets, Haibun Monday #7
I would like you all to write a haibun based on any of the quotes above. Please use the compact haibun form for this: one or two tight paragraphs with one haiku. Please note that the haiku portion must deal with nature.
“At every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss.”
― Paulo Coelho
Lost girl. She looked around at her options,
but none of them seemed to fit. School would trap
her in a mold like a bundt pan. Styling hair
could be creative, but hard on the feet. She ended
her choices by becoming an office worker.
Now she laughs at her past misadventures–
plucking out the fun and fury like fine
feathers–by writing about them. It’s not a bad
place to be, the wonderland of her mind.

colors sway like liquid art
one is purple
