Niji (Rainbow) – July 7, 2015

Field and Bubble

world of bubbles
floating in the green field
dancing rainbows

through drops of rain
rainbow glistening windows
a summer shower

rain in sunshine
a bridge of vibrant colours
summer rainbow

Summer Rainbows,

just tiny bits of light caught in the water as rain falls through the sunshine.

summer reflections  – rainy sunny afternoon –  rainbow

One-bun invented by Jim Kacian sounds like a bakery order so I’m suggesting we call this extreme form of haibun an ichibun … what do you say 😉 ?

Rain – June 5, 2015

Rainbow

Rainbow

bike-riding
a sudden summer shower
on the unknown path

sunshine shower
sparkling drops fall silently
a new rainbow

droplets of rain
fall  upon the summer birds
evening rhapsody

and with the rain
the earth refreshed is sweetened
ah – new cut grass
a green perfume fills the air
mixed with honeysuckle

Haibun Thinking- The Rainbow – January 8, 2015

 

A rainbow is like a miracle.

That early evening walking down the streets of Bolzano after a downpour of epic proportions, I almost missed the rainbow. Street lights were already lit to pierce the darkness that had enveloped the city.  From my vantage point though, I could see that the skies were clear on the horizon and there the sun still kissed the land.

Then I spotted it … the rainbow. Faint at first but it soon gained strength. It seemed to be a symbol.  A bridge between the darkness of near night into the clear blue skies full of light. I thought, ‘now I understand why the rainbow flag is used to symbolize peace’.

Everyone else continued along their way huddled in their coats under their umbrellas.  It seemed that I was the only one who’d seen that portent created by Mother Nature as a gift and a hope.

in the darkness
a rainbow shows the way
clear skies
