Gull glitter

This extreme haibun erased is for the Secret Keeper’s writing challenge, to use these words:

CITY | GRASS | PLAY | RANT | WATER

I have borrowed Paul Militaru’s lovely photograph again for inspiration. Thanks Paul!

flight-over-the-stars

On the water, sunlight plays, a steely scimitar slicing the city’s heart in two. Gulls shatter the silver mirror and send ripples flying, feather-soft and rapid as the silent fishes that dart among the frond-waving grassy pastures of the sea.

 

too bright this light

that splintersgull plunges

into green depths

 

Water ripples

flying fishes dart

among sea splinters.
