A kiss is a lovely trick by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. Ingrid Bergman
Overgrown field. A diverse weed choked tangled abyss. Wild flowers – missing. I suspect they grow in places where their roots roam free. I wonder where summer’s golden flowery beauties, the Black-Eyed Susan, have gone.
Worried, writing fears grow wild. Cripples.
I walk alone. Small rocky path along the fence line. Neighbors – all busy, except one. Solitary horse. Idly stands, eager to greet. His swishing tail seems inefficient as it battles a horse-fly army attack.
Horse flies, knife-ripping bastards. Chew off horseflesh leaving a trail of small bleeding wounds – their victory flag. I hop the fence. Spend time talking and stroking horse’s light brown hide.
Exterminate – a word with historical horrors attached, but today – bring on the massacre.
Wipe out blood draining fears of writing mediocrity.
Take them as surprise kisses

Some days I find writing to be a challenge. Do you have those kind of days? How do you get past it? I have found the art of haibun writing a fun way to get out of the “funky” days. It may be because I know a haiku comes with the package – being haiku obsessed lately. Who knows. I do know if you seek writing inspiration, you can always find it with Ye Pirate’s Cabin Fever – LĪGO HAIBUN. Visit today and be amazed.
Thanks, as always.
