#Haibun – Magical Melody

Exhilaration
Melodies echo in space
Notes grant excursion

Losing track of time, a curious virtuoso reinvigorates an abandoned piano which longs to captivate the world once again. Its strings are vibrating with excitement. Dancing dust of hypnotic lights celebrate the instrument’s rebirth. His gnarled audience, on the other hand, is unaccustomed to such brilliance and attempts to recoil back into the darkness, but is bounded by its vines and roots. As the story is woven, the river encompasses the euphony, flows beyond the pages, and travels into the midnight air.

Cool night embraces
Inspiration left intact
Piece mesmerizes

Hello everyone! I'm a technical writer by day, creative writer by night. I have a wild imagination yearning for more in life. I'm fascinated by many subjects that have developed into a sort of mental and physical wanderlust that ultimately leads me to experience a variety of cultural shocks. Welcome to my journey and looking forward to reading your blogs!

    1. Thank you VJ! I started off with other poetic forms, but I settled on this one which captured everything I wanted it to express.

      When I was reading another poetry blog, I thought the author brought a good point when she said that you wouldn’t use a Tanka to describe the bacon and eggs that she ate for breakfast, because the purpose of a Tanka is normally to express something profound.

      I’ve wondered if certain poetic forms are better to use in certain cases over others.
