Haibun: Silent sounds

This extreme haibun erased is for the dverse prompt.

The silence that never falls is all around—the sound of damp air between dripping raindrops, the intake of birdbreath when a run of notes is ended, and the run of words that never falters, never stumbles in the ghost voice in my head.

 

On the cusp

of the rose petal

a single note rings.

Silence

the sound of raindrops

on the rose petal

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I checked on the hour, before the prompt hit my inbox and there were already three poems posted. I took a bit longer than 0 minutes though 🙂

  1. A beautiful haibun Jane, I love ‘the sound of damp air between dripping raindrops’ and the last haiku is a gem :o) xxx

  2. I was drawn to the ‘sound of damp air between dripping raindrops’ and the ‘intake of birdbreath when a run of notes is ended’, which took my breath away, Jane! The raindrops
    on the rose petal appeals to my sense of smell – I’m currently inhaling little breaths of honeysuckle through the open window.
