Haibun Monday

Walk Haibun

When I fell, the sand scraped my face a bit but still I laughed so hard that my stomach hurt. Our walk that night is still a cause of joy-filled delight for me. I often wonder if you ever think about that evening so long ago. Well really, do you ever think about me?

We escaped the falderal of the party narrowly as we fled blindly to the sea. The sand like a plush carpet to our out of place feet. You and I were not a part of that scene and took great comfort in our camaraderie. The sound of the waves so loud it deleted the noise of the blaring music we had left behind us. Free to walk the beach and soak in the sea with it’s tranquil and rhythmic breathing. We sat on the rocks and simply held each other’s hands as the healing sunset relaxed us.

On the way back is when I fell. Could that have been a Freudian slip?

a clear path upon the sea

the water is calm

Haibun Monday #13 – Walking

Bjorn Rudberg hosted this week’s Haibun Monday asking us to write one about a walk or walking. This is my contribution.

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.
