Hello there everyone.
I’ve been writing poetry again and had a go at joining in the fun over at Colleen Chesebro’s website for her “Colleen’s 2020 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge”.
Tonight, I have written a Haibun poem. This is a poem that combines prose and includes a haiku at the end.
I’m also going to make this a “Found Haibun poem” as well. Since the prompt for this week was to use the words “Comfort & Worn”, I ended up using the poem “Ode to Silence” by Edna St Vincent Millay as my inspiration for my own found poem, since her poem contains themes of comfort, along with life wearing us down emotionally.
If you want to read the magnificent poem that inspired my own poem then check it out at the link below:-

Finally, here is my poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it!

“Sound in the Wind That Will Not Silence a Dream” – A Found Haibun by David Ellis
Comfort you seek, in this noisy now. The friendly rain and snow, be of heart. Sound in the wind that will not silence a dream. Beauty from music among the air, whispering a moment of laughter. Between the mountains and the sea, know not where a ruined place was once but now is instead, an echo. Her shadow is anywhere in the world. Lovely before and after they were there. Consider there is, beyond breath, divine being, of mood you seek. Desire has returned, before all things, she is there.
Gracious night and day
Drink her wine, taste restless earth
Perfect without haste
