Written for: dVerse, Haibun Monday – “Morning” (posted by Mish)
Aww yes, the theme I have chosen for this week’s Haibun prompt is “morning”.
Isn’t every morning a miracle?
Do you embrace it or resist it?
Walk us through one of your mornings. Describe a morning routine, a cherished morning memory, an early morning walk or a glorious sunrise. The birds may be singing praises to a clear, blue sky or the fog may have set in. As we all know, not all mornings are wonderful.
Were my eyes blurred by sleep,
and fragments of leftover
dreams? Nothing visible
outside my window. Vigorously
rubbing a circle on the glass had no effect.
Wetlands were occluded by dense white fog.
Mesmerized, I watched it begin to lift
like a curtain, and there, was morning.
a darkness at dawn
an evil omen for day
lifts into light
