Haibun Monday, Night Sky

30

September 5, 2016 by petrujviljoen

Crickets have started. It’s still early. It’s the last half hour of day’s drama – topmost sky turns indigo, paling to soft light blue blending to pale yellow. A violet line along the deep green horizon. Valleys disappear. Orange, pink, violet wisps streak the sky. Long after the sun bid goodnight.

First star appears, brightens, throbs. More and more, a great very many more. Present to, in the night.

    like someone already said, you’ve displayed a gorgeous painting; love how night brightens up, little by little, starting with a single star…’stardom triumphant’…wow…

    After the colour imagery in your prose, that is a beautiful haiku – I love the idea of night taking over from day and triumphant stars!

    Oh. great! I see you really took your time to absorb it. What a nice concept, the night taking over the light. I like “violet wisps,” too.

  16. I love the idea of the sun clocking off and handing the job over to the stars. I suppose the sun is a star, too. This is such a visual haibun, like reading a painting.
