Pride Month, and other Haibun - 9. Night Blooms

.

Night Blooms

Haibun

 

Early the other morning, I couldn’t sleep anymore from all the memory-filled dreams I was having, so I took the dog outside. Standing in the garden, all the world peaceful and sweet, I saw a truly Mid-western moon – the type I grew up with. Placid and nearly full, and yet hidden within the glory of its own eerie light. Moons like this remind me I have no home anymore, not with my parents now gone from the world.

 

5 AM, the moon

playing night-bloomer with clouds

smells Angel Trumpets.

I am glad, you posted it here as well. It is so wonderful. Those early morning hours with their special peace often soothe me after my personal memory-filled-dreams. And lucky me, very often there is someone to talk and listen and fill my thoughts with beautiful poetry.  Thanks for sharing this and for everything you give. Muha
