1.24.24 – haibun…While you were sleeping…

While you were sleeping…
…I wandered out and
…into a morning dark enough
…to see a full crescent moon’s dark edges.

While you were sleeping…
…dawn pink mixed with a sky-blue
…and mauve appeared across the clouds.

While you were sleeping…
…we moved into the sunfield and
…the sun peeked from behind trees,
…and rose above rooftops.

mauve
pink and blue upon the clouds
a morning’s soft purple
