where, who she is, as sky dissolves.
In the mirror
Two faces of moon stare back
Flock of geese has arrived
Who bounded her heart to garnet stone?
The sea swallowed her garden of carnations, tea-
cups, even her words, in one gulp.
Notes: There is a form called haibun which is a combination of prose with haiku. For this writing exercise, I combined American Sentence (20 syllables, structured into two lines instead of one straight line) with Tanka (unstructured with a total of 31 syllables).
