Haibun: Moon Echoes

two whippets in winter jackets running together on the beach

The beach is still covered in driftwood while the sea oozes calm. We come here again and again, for poems and photographs, playing ball and silver shimmies. Yet every day is different. The crispness of the air, the salt on our lips. There’s always a variation, a moment within us, born anew.

the circles in life
as round as December’s moon
echoes, echoes
