This week’s Ligo Haibun prompts areHaze and Monsoon. I opted for Haze. It is heartening to know that I got a second honourable mention for last week’s Haibun that I wrote. Thanks to all my lovely friends out there who continue to support me in my journey of better writing 🙂
Billowing clouds rose gently and languorously up the hills, full and thick. Through the haze, cold dewy wetness hissed, kissing the grass in wild abandon and I could only stare in awe, struck by the silvery hue of my surroundings. I was caught up in the moment and I wanted so much for him to reach out and take me in his arms. I wanted to be kissed senseless, if only to emulate nature’s love affair; I wanted to savour his very essence if only to erase my doubts.
He rose out of the mist, like a god. “I came, my love, for you.” I heard the words and I gasped. Powerful winds pushed me into his waiting arms; the clouds enveloped us, together as one.
“It’s been a while, lover boy. I’m all yours. Kiss me.” I whispered urgently. He smiled that killer smile even as he bent his head.
This rendezvous in the hills was worth it, ending a long wait while my husband studied in a strange land. The haze in my heart now evaporates.seven years I wait to see dew and grass play love He is ever mine
This is excellent, Celestine.
Ow, thanks so much, Alastair

That was a really good read. I’m wondering where your romance novel is. I could total see a haiku before the start of each chapter.
Thank you dear Nana. You have given me an idea now. I shall surely put a haiku on each page. And don’t you worry; soon my friend, soon 🙂

My husband travels quite a bit. The longest he was a way was about two months. I am not sure I could imagine being separated for seven years. I really enjoyed this.
Is there any wonder why you recieve support and honors – your writing, you deserve the acknowledgement.
Blessings to you and your creative endevors!
Blessings to you too Jules and I thank you so much for the lovely wishes. You know my husband once came to the US to seek greener pastures and he was there for three years. It was not easy at all. the marriage was almost strained. Thank God he packed bag and baggage home since I was not prepared to relocate 🙂
Yeow! Hot…you got the room steamy with your delightful play with words! Love the creative imagery, Celestine. 😅
Thank you so, Sunshine

Thank you, Blossom. It’s a pleasure to have you here. I enjoyed your blog 🙂

Hello Celestine, the things I truly enjoyed about your well composed haibun are the flow as you moved the story forward, the elemental aspect of nature and the beauty of your words of love. As always a most beautiful haiku!
I’m most grateful for your words, Penny. It’s so encouraging to have been honourably mentioned twice and I can only strive to give of my best. 😉
