Day 12 :
A Haibun :


The sun will rise soon , at the moment every thing is still , sleep and dreams very near the surface . It is the time of change over when leaves shiver in anticipation and flowers open their rosebuds . I can hear the earth inhale and the sky exhale .

                       Time of the
                       Peaceful universe
                       Cleansed by dawn

I am awakened by the rays of the sun as is the whole forest . The gentle heat drives away the nights lingering languor . The startled doe glides away and the panther goes to sleep to fight another day . The cockatoos screech , drowning the coos of the doves .

                      Gentle push
                      Heat invades body
