Haibun: A Sunrise In November


black whippet in burgundy/grey wintercoat on mountain trail


When the sun breaks through the mountain slowly wakes her sounds. We hear the scurry of tiny feet, the buzz of late mosquitoes. Behind some stones a caperceillie calls to warn of dogs approaching. There is no need to fear sweet friend. We are fellow earthlings here and come to walk in peace

divine spark
among golden heather
eyes are dancing

        A Veteran as Master of any
        Science or Art one must
        Practice that Art or
        Science for
        10,000 Hours
        and what i feel
        about PoEtry after
        reaching that destination
        in around 55.5 months of doing tHat
        it is like the Monument of Washington
        at 555 feet and 6660 inches as that
        to my
        on 6660 as i
        started writing
        at 606 months
        old overall now
        aLL beComes Holy
        and Sacred Full of
        Meaning and Purpose
        iT becoMes so Clear thaT
        God Lives as all iN Truly a UniVersal
        Consciousness Vibrant and Living in
        All of ReaLiTy bEyond meaSure of whaT
        anyOne will ever be able to put into words
        the best thing of all in FloW iN ZoNE is tHeRe
        is aLWays
        my FriEnd
        AS HeaVeN
        iS alWaYs DiffeRenT NoW
        And truly Hell is an Aghogday
        Another Ground Hog Day that
        alWays stays the sAMe as ‘they’
        say be careful what ‘you’ wish for for same is hell
        And True i too Am A Veteran of Ground Hog Days of Hell..
        NicE to
        be out and
        aBouT iN DiFFeReNTNoW..:)

  2. Hi Xenia and wonderful whippets! I love the divine spark and dancing eyes in the mountains. I hope the weather is still treating you kindly and wish you the best weekend! We’re off to London to see the stage version of The Exorcist with daughter and son-in-law – and I get to see the bump! πŸ™‚ xxx
