Haibun: Winter Morning



two whippets in winter coats playing with balls on the beach at low tide


The half moon fades away in a daze of blue. The air is crisp. Gulls squawk and peck at clams and mussels. The beach smells of seaweed and driftwood, the crabs that walked here. It is time to play.

winter circles
her wings of ice and snow
around the sun
