Overcast

overcast s

Seeds catch the air, scattering, dispersing, falling. They burrow under the earth, embedded, laden with green.  They wait to be painted in rainbows, to laugh with joy as they open and seek the sky.  They remember the kisses of bees.

The North Wind pushes back, sunless and relentless, chilling its moisture into frozen blankets of grey.

Sleeplessness holds me–
I like awake, listening,
heavy with the dark.

Merril at dVerse asked us to consider March Madness, using the haibun form.

    There is such lightness in the first part–the seeds and rainbows and kissing of bees (what a wonderful phrase!). Then the tension of the pushback of cold winds. This is definitely March madness. Well done, Kerfe!

    Nice line: “heavy with the dark” The dark does seem heavy.
