Halloween ~ a haibun

Like winter mist that rises, blurring the eye just as much as reality, letting shadows make shapes and stories in your minds, disquiet unsettling the illusion of power, senses heightened in fear of the unknown creeping up your spine, so the gateway between life and death breathes sometimes, inhaling wisps of heaven, smoking an ember from hell, letting out a sigh for the living sometime during Halloween.

meigetsu ~ a haibun

Alex Andrews on

Skirting the emerald lake is a scraggly trail that leads to our spot. The crisp autumn air tugs at my thin leggings and at the coils of memory tucked under the sumptuous blanket of yesterday. Twilight is fast filling empty spaces between my eyes as I unravel the strings of soul crafted messages, souvenirs from our past, pages yellowed like the gold entwined on the emrald lake for just that precious moment as sunset and  moonrise hug on the lake… a Renaissance painting commemorating our Coup de Foudre.
