#Haiku Happenings #4: Merril’s latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!
Frank is continuing his bird-challenges. This week it the skylark.
We sit in a vineyard watching a production of Romeo and Juliet. Onstage, the lark sings, the lovers part in sweet sorrow, longing for a tomorrow that never comes. Offstage, the sun sets and the night birds call. In the twilight, my husband and I, together for over four decades, listen to human voices and to nature around us. We have had the joys, the sorrows, the todays, and the hopes for tomorrows. We sip our wine and smile, happy to be here, happy to be together.
skylark in dawn flight
summer’s promises in song
winged love soars with hope
