1910



['Stamp Labour Day Cipriani and Butler' from google dot com]

To sweep, clearing the path for a shimmering sun, is to paint the day begun. Ignoring dawn, ignoring bird songs. To boiling water, coffee dust, adds an instant aroma alluring to beginnings. Across the street, bagged garbage are black crows; like shadows at night heaped. Later, the trucks will swarm in, in a fury and a din for the Sunday pickup. Behind the wall, the park, empty, except for early morning sunrise.

a ripple of thoughts
which ones should i harness -
rain on tin roof

__I like that metaphor >that compressive glut< of ideas in the mind, as that >cacophony of rain< on a tin roof. Face one drop at a time. _m

Life can be so overwhelming at times... We should always be try our best to never ignore birdsong, or life might stop being what it's supposed to.

I like the garbage bags, "heaped, like black crows."

Jae Rose said...

I like that perhaps you harvested all the thoughts - and I too loved the black bags being like crows..

Love rain on a tin roof. And love all the images you've painted. Your words feel like love, raining like water, on a tin roof. Thank you Gillena.

How important it is to acknowledge, be thankful and revere our histories. We are what we are are and have what we have through the struggle of our forebears. What a great haibun this is.

Wendy Bourke said...

The prose piece has such a lovely cadence - and the haiku evokes such a restorative, meditative feeling. Beautiful!

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...
