poetry marathon #5: ekphrastic poem from picture

haibun in the time of plague ~

(a haibun is Japanese form that marries a haiku with prose)

fall light fills the dinghy

water burnished gold shimmers

lightfall a road home

across the water, autumn sun lays a path I can follow somewhere else, somewhere outside this time of plague & hate & death & grief. at the golden bridge that spans earth & stars & water, light cleanses me. returns me as if reborn, a clear point of light in a sea of sky ~
