Ten, or: Twelve minutes

A ‘haibun’

bus stop offers shade
ten minute sunny spring walk
less than appealing

In another week or two, by my estimates, my mornings will be less confusing.

However, even as recently as two weeks ago, the skies in Jerusalem opened up and water rushed through the ill-prepared streets. Then, even when it wasn’t raining, it became very chilly and overcast for quite a few days; and I started wearing my fleece pajamas again after having put them away just a week before.

Today, I diligently checked the weather and dressed accordingly, I thought. But then, in the late afternoon, I ended up waiting ten minutes for a two minute bus ride… instead of just walking the short, warm distance to my office.

d’Verse Haibun Monday

At d’Verse, we are encouraged to write late spring-themed haibun.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. Temperatures have been all over the place in western Pennsylvania too. Finally, though, it looks like we’ll be having a stretch of sustained spring weather. Just 50s or 60s (F) for awhile, which is a relief.
