Haibun – Stars

Something about the night had me mesmerised. Perhaps it was the breeze, perfumed with scents of jasmine drifting from his garden next door. Or the stars sparkling in the velvet sky; one moment a few exploded in fireworks, blazing. One moment they fizzled into oblivion. I willed him to come out and be part of this magic.

Minutes later he was behind me on the lawn.

shooting stars
we find each other
in the magic
