You've heard about the Monday Blues well this is Monday WRites (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea).
Welcome to Monday WRites # 321: A Happy Monday to all. Be Safe.
Challenge - to write a haibun
HAIBUN - FEAR
My heart thumps the wildest, when the earth shakes
the slightest tremor, the loudest quake. Seconds of life slip away. To where i retreat, my mind leaves
no trace. Like dying again and again, without the preps for the surgeon's knife.
The knives, bombs, guns, that anger and hatred dish out to the starving appetite of war,
via mass media, be it fact be it fictions. Those stories i can live without. Such are the violent events that bring terror to my heart.
There is fear too in loneliness, but there, challenges for joy in solitude reward the willing learner.
sometimes the dawn
lingers too long in absence
of bird whistles
