I write when I can get a word in edgewise
The first line of your haiku -- "buying a story" -- perfect. Thanks for sharing this haibun. Unexpected conversations like this one make me hopeful.
I LOVE this little journey you've let us in on, Linda. And, "the heart of a shell, inside of a puppy's ear… a giggle..." - downright swoon-y. :0) Glad you were, of course, tuned in to the story behind the juicy pear... feeding your soul, too - thanks for sharing!
Oh, my, I love this one! The haiku at the end tells all but the prose before is where the story lies. Love this imagery, "inside of a puppy's ear…a giggle...trailing along after this setting sun."
Another terrific haibun to add to your growing collection! I don't usually like pears either, but you have me craving one! Like others, I love "the heart of a shell, inside of a puppy's ear..." Thank you for sharing!
I suspect that your tongue is now sweet and no longer dusty, Linda. It's a beautiful post, the haibun perfect. Seems that "a most careful affair" has proved "fruitful"! Thank you!
This haibun is brimming with beautiful images, Linda! Wow! You've done it again! Your prose shimmers and shines in this one.
I think haibun is truly your calling, Linda. You capture me every time. I hope we experience that first blush and tickle of autumn here in Florida SOON!
such a beautiful post, Linda --- I'm glad it's worth it to you to drive 4 hours to the wilds... and thank you for sharing with all of us! xo
I do love haibun and thoroughly enjoyed this one. What an interesting adventure and exchange. I happen to like pears too :).
Linda, "A first blush of autumn tickles the tops of a few trees" and the journey begins. This haibun has a beautiful story line and haiku to follow that synthesizes it all in 3 lines. Well done!
This is a beautiful example of haibun. Your images are just gorgeous. I especially love "the heart of a shell, inside of a puppy's ear..." so perfect!
This is beautiful! The images sparkle and shine. I can't even pick a favorite. Can I just echo all that everyone else has shared and more?
Yes, yes, and yes--I bought it, two hands full. Love the slight but important turn between haibun and haiku.
