Euphoric Acedia

family stories

Haibun

Afternoon winds blew apart gray cumulus clouds that canvased the sky. Patches of radiant blue appear.

Frankie wraps his arms around my neck, covers my mouth, and says, “complainer.” Mira, rising with a sigh, brings the mail downstairs.

Sunlight intermittently fills our bedroom.

I procrastinate, ignoring pinpricks of conscience and the weight on my mind. I stare instead at the gulf between who I am and who I want to be.

I fell in love with writing ever since I wrote my first short story at the age of 12 and my first poem in high school. My free-verse has appeared in the literary e-zine Pif. My haibun has been published in Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) and Contemporary Haibun, CHO's annual print anthology. I am honored to be a part of the Image Curve community as a contributing poet.
