IDYLLIC SPRING

Carpe Diem Special #187 Georgia's 3rd, a haibun "idyllic spring"


IDYLLIC SPRING


Grassy steps led to an over-grown garden. Looking down Janice wondered who had built the walls and indeed, when those stony steps had last been used. The garden full of wild flowers was weed-choked but the sun filtered down invitingly. She began to descend, half-way down the stairs she stopped surprised.
Piercing the silence, a blood-curdling howl. Robin red-breast rises, screeching, into the sky.
She looked down the remaining stairs and saw a large brindled cat stride out from the undergrowth. Tail swishing she realized the hunter had lost his prey.

How does one even begin to write something as beautiful as Georgia's words.  One does not.  Sometimes the words need no response only a listening ear.  A mind's eye open to the journey over the cobblestone path of words, syllables, and phrases.  A bridge built in one's imagination between author and reader.

in silence
listening
to beauty
