Haibun – Magic at the mountains!

Haibun – Veil & Smoke in response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge #37

Excitement mounts as I set out on a holiday to the mountains. Driving along, I marvel at the artistic expertise with which nature paints itself across the varying landscapes.  From the vivid golden hue across the horizon to a somber silvery grey, nearing the hills. The slight drizzle drapes itself in a smoky embrace along the valley.

Fog veils the mountains

in a misty silver gown

the clouds kiss the peak

gentle breeze ambles along

to reveal a blushing bride.

I go on a clicking spree to capture the alluring facets of its mesmerizing beauty. My eyes feast on the kaleidoscope of nature’s charisma, while my heart soaks in the tranquil and serene peace of the mountains.

 

I have used the synonym fog in place of smoke in the tanka.

 

Haibun is a prosimetric literary form originating in Japan, combining prose and haiku/tanka. The range of haibun is broad and frequently includes autobiography, diary, essay, prose poem, short story and travel journal.

    Loved the analogy to a “blushing bride”. “Smoky embrace” is such a beautiful description. Beautiful haibun, Radhika. ❤
