I walk the pathless trail, into a forest abuzz with haiku.
Revelling in the delicious sense of being drawn into a
metaphysical embrace.Scents of pine, cedar, fir brim into the
ambience of gossamer shadows.

liquid melodies
of birds ripple the air:
a squirrel browses

The quiet eloquence of the forest falls ,tuneful murmurs on my ears,
like the breath of eternal spirits roaming infinitesimal spaces,
unwearied, plucking strings in the purled leafage. I muse their whisperings.

aurum light filters:
leaves quiver into
cerulean drippings

I feel a rush of serendipity, entering a divine cosmos where
nourishing and nuturing renews verve. I lean into the wispy
slender branches of the weeping willow and slumber, my shadow
etched in gloam, as incantations of birds fade..I close my eyes.

a drunken bee
faints into my lap:
winter’s exodus

  1. Oh Yazzy!!!!!!!!!!!!! I adore this!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a rainy cloudy day here, but I want nothing more to go play in the forest and feel your words anew!!!! This is like the softest blanket on a perfectly chilly day. When spring is just awakening, and the world is too beautiful for words, and your words captured it! Incredible!!!!!!! I love you so much this is amazing.

  2. I think the first person, mixed with the three line reality checks is something else – that, to me was difficult to write in an understandable way, but I hope you got what I was trying to say. You are cleverer than me, I rest my case.

  3. An excellent and atmospheric haibun yassy. I am starting to read more about this form and this has tempted me more. I love the last haiku, – a drunken bee fainting into your lap creates such wonderful imagery πŸ™‚

  4. Reblogged this on Mick E Talbot Poems and commented:
    a haibun full
    divulging natures secrets
    lush sweet aromas
    blissful silence
    no whispers a gentle breeze
    weeping willow rocks
    birds of paradise
    echoing your beauty
    your gift from nature
    my words falter
    my concentration blurred
    drowned all asunder
    a moments respite
    haibun and you haiku
    exquisite words

    wow wow W O W!!!

  5. Yassy, you hit the gorgeous nail on the head again. Divine!!
    (Not sure how I missed it the first time, I saw it thanks to Mick’s reblog. I’m not sure everything shows up in the reader).
    You are inspiring.

  6. A beautiful haibun series, filled with a wonderful mix of figurative and descriptive language. There is such a peacefulness created as readers are drawn into this world you describe.
