Tellus

#Haiku Happenings #3: Jules’ latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!

Tellus

(a haibun)

At two in the morning the thin bowl of moon rests on top of the

neighbor’s roof in the west. I wonder what dreams are weighing

that silver sliver of a saucer and if it will land softly into the waiting

spring ground, like a child recovering from a nightmare rests upon

their mother’s chest.

turning earth, life orb

pining waning moon, so far…

both circle the sun

At seven in the morning the brilliant ball of the sun rests on top of the

neighbor’s roof in the east. With the return of spring by nine it is warm

enough to retrieve the paper that was tossed on the driveway, with only

a light jacket. In all seasons we need to protect ourselves from those

strong rays.

turning earth, life orb

pining humans – are they apt

stewards of Mother?

Note: Tellus is a Latin word meaning “Earth”
