Micropoetry #12 (A Haibun)

mm

 

When I began this boat ride the playful muslin waves almost had a silk touch, days bright and nights velvety; darkness had a pole star. My words were songs, my heart a flower dream. I was dazed when hidden rocks crunched the boat muffling me. Now I let my flotsam-soul drift towards sunset.

 

 

a burgundy leaf

has no option but to drift

in autumn current
