#Haiku Happenings #8: Toni Spencer’s latest #quadrille #haibun for #dVersepoets!
For Merrill’s prompt at dVerse – a quadrille. A quadrille is a poem in any form with exactly 44 words using the prompted word, sans title. The word today is “rise”. A haibun in the manner of Basho.
Haibun: The Balloon
“Perhaps wisdom… is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.” Anthony Bourdain
The day I buried my mother’s ashes was a hot summer day. I untied the balloon from my wrist and let it go. I watched it rise quickly to the sky.
balloon rises to heaven
and clears the trees –
my heart goes with it
