Finishing Their Cupcakes

cupcakes, haibun poem

Haibun

Mira and Frankie finish making the cupcakes. She raises her voice over his removal of something. Then she shows him the final touches:

applying cream.

ground dark-chocolate and peppermint.

chocolate chips.

She pours more icing, telling him to “hold on” and “wait.” They’ve made more than cupcakes for New Year’s Eve by the time they finish.

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. Visit my website www.frankjtassone.wordpress.com to see more of my poetry.
