Written for: Carpe Diem #1692 Summer Love … extreme haibun

“This month we will see a lot of examples of love in Japanese poetry, but for starters I have chosen to challenge you with the creation of a so called “extreme haibun”. An “extreme haibun” is a short story in which you may use a maximum of 50 words including the poetry. So it’s really a short story.

For this first episode the theme of the month is also the theme for the day “Summer Love”.”

They raced side by side to ocean, swimming and splashing.
Each day, a new discovery. Sand held mysteries
if you were willing to dig.

At seasons’s end, their families left for home. The friends
howled, tails between their legs.

new born robins grow bigger
they dread leaving

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.
