Watercolour-whisp clouds, drifting as if the merest hint of Chinese White has been dabbed from sable onto Coeruluem Blue. The sky is a vast upturned cup, an endless realm. I stand and stare, transfixed for a moment, forgetting all that the day has laid at my feet.
a trick of the eye
This week, it’s Haibun Monday’s turn over on dVerse (and yes, I am a day late, please forgive me!). The lovely Kanzensakura is our host for the haibun and we have been invited to write on the theme of sky.
I hope you enjoy my offering and please do head on over to dVerse to look up, up and away and enjoy what others have written.

The sky a vast upturned cup… I feel the bliss of being inside… what a moment to just be, and let the pressure of the day be released.
It was indeed a blissful moment this evening.
Love your haiku, Freya!
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous ❤️
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The watercolor imagery is beautiful. So often, I find that the clouds appear to be a painting.
Thank you, Bryan. I’m pleased that it spoke to you.
We have all week to do the haibun prompts! I just did a second. This one of yours is much clearer and more succinct than my second one, yet I feel there is a likeness in them. 🙂
Ah, but if I don’t do them when I first see them, I’m likely to forget! 😉
I shall have to visit yours – I’m sure it is wonderful.
I love the clouds as a painting, as I so often think of them that way myself. And thinking of the universe as an upturned cup – wonderful!

It’s not ours, but a lot of houses here in the UK still have them. We don’t do pay per view – we don’t watch enough TV. But we do have wonderful access to different channels’ programmes online, so we can watch what we want, when we want it (without paying).
Glad to hear
