1963

a haibun with the narrative in the form of daisy chain (inspired by Muriopsis from A Different Perspective blog)


Field of grasses

grasses swaying in the wind

wind that blows as long as is life

life but when it dies, life,

life continues lifted up

up into a different realm

realm beyond a nine-year-old:

old and ever new, that much

much she understands, not just in the field*

moment reaching

echo throughout and beyond:

her understanding

*a moment of insight beyond words, age 9, the darkest period of my life; also reminding me of RS Thomas’ poem Bright Field: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk7l9MmaTsQ
