GloPoWriMo/NaPoWriMo Early-Bird: Spring Wedding

 

Today’s special early-bird prompt is to write a haibun!  This poem is inspired by the wilting tulips next to my writing screen.

And on Friday morning, she walked the aisle of spring
carpeted with petals of blooms; pink, yellow, white
and rainbow, dreaming to find him at the altar of bliss.

But, he wasn’t there waiting to be married in the routine
of expectations. She found him at home weaving sheets of
love threaded with poetry, songs and letters.

in the spring moonlight
you are my chosen night queen
hurry home from church

  • I LOVE THIS!! So beautiful, the captivating line is “weaving sheets of love threaded with poetry, songs and letters”–and the final line, “hurry home from church” grabbed and blessed my heart. <3

  • This one caught me (by the throat) and did not let go until I exhaled after the last line. A delight.
