Haibun, Poetry by Sarah

No More Sunny Days

Blue skies and marshmallow clouds deceive me into thinking this is just another day. The traitorous sun rose this morning, like it alway does, and warbling birds gather outside my window. All this reminds me I am alone. I reach for the pillow where your head lay, breathing in scents now lost to black. My disconsolate heart, resolves always, to remember you.

Winter’s here to stay.
Fallen leaves all blown away.
No more sunny days.

Poetry by Sarah, Tanka

No More

Her only comfort,
as the rain falls around her,
– a canopy’s space.
She dreams of a time to come,
when the tears will flow no more.
