Cloud Haibun

My back was moist from the dew touched grass as I lay searching the sky. I noticed that my breathing was steady and my pulse was calm. There above me was a cloud shaped like a  bunny rabbit. “Oh, look! There is a heart!”, I said, talking to myself. The trees were like a frame to a majestic piece of art. One that offered visions of life that aided the young woman that I was. I rolled over with a huge smile on my face and promptly went to sleep under the cloud filled heavens. A day in paradise.

Haibun Monday: The Sky IS the Limit

Haibun Monday with Kanzensakura.

Published by: writersdream9

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. As a child I watched clouds all the time and this post reminded me I need to do this more often. Just to lie in the grass and chill watching the clouds form into objects and such. Beautiful post, Carol!!! ❤

  2. Well, I am so glad I got this in complete form! Titles for haibun, haiku, tanka are not necessary and in fact, unnecessary. But I loved this post of watching the clouds. I love to watch the clouds roll by. And such a perfect moment to go to sleep. What bliss!
