Blue and Wild~Haibun

Haibun Monday Gabriella

My mind was on the flowers as I approached the hidden home of our dear friends. Wildflowers offer an insight into the realities of randomness. I notice it everywhere and it touches me. When science and spirit unite. They were a bluish/purple and they stood like vanguards above the tall grass. I was revelling in this when greeted by my friends welcoming me warmly to their beautiful country home.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. All we can ever do within our cloistered gardens is emulate the creative random beauty that surrounds us in Nature; of course unless it turns to tsunami or flood or hurricane, or some such other disaster. Oh well, we are just guests here, & must observe the house rules; cider house or otherwise.

  2. I really love this:

    “Wildflowers offer an insight into the realities of randomness. I notice it everywhere and it touches me. When science and spirit unite. ”

    And I’m so glad to see that yours is shorter, like mine. I was feeling pretty embarrassed, as if I had done it wrong. But what I read said it shouldn’t be very long. I’ll have to do some more research for my next attempt.

    Again, this is so beautiful.

  3. grrr…I’m in Bermuda (not grrring that! we’re here for two glorious months!)…but the internet keeps going in and out. Just finished a reply here and got “shut out”….try again. I love the idea of randomness of wildflowers! Nature’s way of scattering beauty in our fields of green….lovely. “and the stood like vanguards above the tall grass..” love this idea but think you want “they” instead of “the?” My autocorrect keeps changing “haibun” to “habit” and first one I wrote in January, that’s what I said….until Bjorn graciously pointed out my error 🙂
    Loved this take….
