They continue to frustrate those with good intentions - a Haibun

10 of 12 given words
rescind void hinge spirit black stagger
gloam (twilight)
petal density
tweed (A rough-surfaced woollen cloth)

Sought to rescind the stricken void of the universe
which hinged upon mysteries embedded in space
Spirits of the souls lodged deep in its belly up high
to watch over below the antics of humankind
Invariably always in conflict bent on chasing riches
to corner them towards their selfish ends. They amassed
the black gold to staggering proportions still wanting
more to gleefully deprive others of the joy of sharing
They continued to frustrate those with good intentions
from darkness to the gloaming before daylight. If they
give way perhaps it was just a mere petal from the big
bouquet. The density of wickedness went well beyond
the tweed jacket they sported everyday

Moon among the stars
Brightness reflects happiness
Under Autumn's spell

For Chev's Carpe Diem Special #220 Orion,
inspired by a haibun of Dolores Fegan and

  1. That haiku is wonderful

    greed leads humans to do such terrible things


  2. Greedy humans or greedy, gloating gods?

  3. 'Those with good intentions...' thanks, they are here, to withstand the dark forces...under full moon no clarity for sure.

  4. Greed sure leads many astray at the end of the day
