Friday Fictioneers – June 6, 2014 (Satori Haibun)

Candles and incense burnt and whilst listening to the shakuhachi I travelled beyond the room into the world of Basho:

the winter storm
hid in the bamboo grove
and quieted away

There alone yet surrounded by the haiku master’s verse, peace descended and the sound of one hand clapping echoed through my mind. The wind of the storm shook the roof tiles the warmth of the fire crackled. The nearness of Satori, tangible, snow began to fall slowly covering the terrace. The here and now – soft white harmony.

winter reflections
the snow grows ever higher
quieting the soul

  1. Dear Georgia,

    A lovely piece, evocative of many things. i loved the flute at the end and the peaceful feeling that came over me as I read your words. Well done.




    • Thanks Susan, I’m happy that the tone of the haibun was apreciated! I like to add musci with some of my posts so I’m always particulary contented when it’s appreciated! The silence of a snowy day is very peaceful indeed. 🙂 Georgia
