A few strokes to complete the mountainscape. Darken the clouds and smudge the trees with my little finger. Something is still missing?

the voice that is stuck
in my vocal cords

    Beautiful and thought provoking –the less than full moon and the stuck voice. This one deserves remembering.

    The beauty of this compact haibun lies in what is left out . . .
    Waxing moon . . . much more than meets the eye

    Very beautifully put together, Geethanjali. The prose and the ku complete the 'circle' for me!
    Well done.

    I shall treasure this one!

    your beautiful haibun pulls regretful emotion to the surface…with a strong, un-relaxing grip…
