Paradise Driven: A Ligo Haibun Affair

ligo haibun, paradise,haiku, prose, poetry, prose fiction,

Because it rattles a bit like arthritic joints do, as you crawl into bed
some people think the tin can is ready to fall apart
But between the rusty side panels and the wrinkles around our eyes,
we keep rolling along –
down highways and into campgrounds.

tick – tock on the clock
seven o’clock meditation
nature mends its ways

Because there had been,
in the past, breakdowns, some repairable in a jiffy,
others too deep –
impossible
we knew, from past exorbitant price bills
the cost of delaying shop repairs.

couple therapy
counselor fixed to wall clock
shaman actor fails

Because intuition packs well between
best friends
Sometimes, getting in touch with what is important
is enough –

auction off spare parts
hold contentment by the hand
paradise driven

    Thank you for your visit and kind words.

    Your piece reminds me of the stalwart country and the people who live there. Using everything until it can not be used anymore. Sometimes that applies to the machines, tractors and the like, as well as the farmers. They can see modernization, but only use it when their own devices completely fail. And actors are part of the modern world – especially those found in movies and on Television who want us to believe in a fantasy on screen when it isn’t the case with how they truly live. Kind of like the first time you find out your teacher doesn’t live at school.

      Jules, you had me chuckling over your last sentence – i really did think some passionate teachers lived in their classroom – and those were the ones who taught the best lessons. ♥ thanks for driving in sharing a bit of your paradise wisdom. 🙂
