#Haiku Happenings #2: Jules’ latest haibun!

Three haibun Idyll; Clime, Weather, Whether

Clime

If the weather were sluggish would Alice have followed the Rabbit in his fine waistcoat down the hole? Do we most often expect better weather when going on an adventure? Or do the best ones arrive to us when the sky is grey and we, instead of moping, find a good place to snuggle up with a book… let our eyelids get heavy, or drop wide eyed into a daydream… Or get lost in a mirror that takes us to another world?

one mirror

reflecting our dreams

who’s smiling

Weather

If the weather were sluggish would the tornado have had time to form and its fierce winds of folly leave the home Dorothy lived in, grounded? And yet there it was… lifted and transported to the land of the Munchkins – In the book, those silver slippers belonging to the Wicked Witch of the East (Yes in the book) were gifted to the girl-child by the Witch of the North!

shines like gold sometimes

leads to Oz

Whether

If the weather were sluggish, would the sun be shining? And yet even at twenty degrees fahrenheit in the first two weeks of winter, in the first few days of the newest year… I sit thinking of two of my favorite books as a child. The ones that could take me out of the present and make me believe I was no longer trapped in an apartment, or a room in a house in the suburbs… That I could actually have good adventures escaping realities that I was too young to comprehend.

adulthood

just a few small steps

from dreaming
