Here I sit on a wooden picnic table, hard yet natural. The afternoon sun is trickling down upon me through the pergola. Still it is providing enough shade that I am comfortable. Behind me, I hear the occasional car driving past. The air is filled with the aroma of warm waffle cones. My eyes drift to the sky out ahead. There is a hawk soaring in the cloudless, picturesque sky just above the strawberry field.
My gaze returns to the familiar sight in front of me. A scene that unfolds year after year. I see my children playing in the once immense sandbox that now appears to be narrowing. Or are my children just growing that fast? Here in this moment, just like the last, I wish for time to cease and this joy to last.
Give way to ruby fruit –
It is Haibun Monday at dVerse. Frank J. Tassone is hosting and he has challenged us to write a Haibun in the present tense, while in the moment.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
With a grateful heart,
