Stop and Listen

Simply hanging there, suspended in mid-air; gently swaying from side-to-side, ever-so-slightly.  Delicate hints of summer break through early-winter eves, beguiling me; a biting autumnal warmth.  Chimes tinkle, streams from the vault of heaven flit amidst fine mesh; detailed threadwork laid bare.  A child’s song plays round and round, rising and falling as time abounds.  And then… everything stops.


a frozen moment

bright lights shine in winter-time –

kindle childlike ways

  1. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to stop time for a moment and just take in what is around without the worry of needing to hurry off.

    A good Haibun. Thank you 🙂

    1. Hey, thanks! No, haven’t written anything yet… just waiting for the right moment, when the waves of inspiration come crashing down 🙂
