The path we follow on bike to work runs very close to water. We chat a little and observe the changes in nature. Every season bring something new, there are ducklings in the water now, and soon it’s time to pick elderflower to brew lemonade. With some sugar and lemons we make concentrate, that keep the taste of summer bloom into winter, when the bay is covered with ice. We bicycle through the groves of ancient oak, and on the fields the grains grow high. Sometimes we meet familiar dogs and greet them as we pass on our way to work.
beams turning its waves
to bejeweled summer-gown —
water remains cold
Today it’s Toni’s turn to host haibun Monday at dVerse. The task is to write a short haibun (one paragraph) about the ordinary, your mornings, or days. Why not your underwear or the selection of clothes?. But the haiku has to be a real one, about nature, seasons and things around us. After all nature is never far away. Today we have holiday in Sweden though so I will not bike to work.
