#Haibun – Emerald Castle
Shrunken by a type of a ray gun developed by a scientist who wanted to sabotage her, Sylvia decides to embark on a quest to Emerald City where she has heard tales of a wizard who can undo the damage. Panting from the aftermath of a courageous battle with a blood-sucking flea who wanted to have her for breakfast, she arrives at the translucent doorstep falling to her knees in gratitude. She apprehensively knocks on the door feeling the ice-cold surface as the vibrations of her knock echo in the chambers ahead. A butler with an unperturbed expression opens the door and with a flourish, he bows deeply before Sylvia and welcomes her inside the castle. Must persist on this journey with hope that justice will be served otherwise we grow accustomed to darkness!
A sparkling jewel
Gleamed in the lush, green forest
In all its splendor
