Haven’t checked in with you for awhile, you’ve been busy. It’s time to see how you are, dear one. With you, even a thorough inquiry will leave a lot left untouched, but we’ll do what we can.
Be honest with yourself.
You haven’t been open to nurturing, it seems, or for my hand the way life intended. So much has changed, yet the same you is before me.
Your inspiration has changed, hasn’t it?
The wind that once fed your lost soul isn’t as salty as it once was, the insignificance you felt and knew well, has healed. Now you’ve transformed your smallness into a wider range of dilemma brought on by your own reoccurring self-doubt. You waver. Thankfully this isn’t your reality, if you’ll only watch yourself move your body.
And for you this is real progress.
There’s a desire within. One you don’t talk about often, if at all. With the possibility of true love finding you, the openness to receive it now welcome in your heart, will you surrender? There’s a feeling of brief cowardice surrounding you.
Don’t submit to the anxiety laying against you.
Believe in the possibility of life’s intentions. You’re deserving and bring with you a host of qualities easily adored.
Patience is requird.
Some advice, my fair one. Don’t fall in love with someone else’s someone. Wait for yours. They’ve needed to heal, too. Eventually, your offering will erase their scars and they yours.
You will love again.
progress continues forward

Thank you for reading. The haibun form is explained by the link provided. Simply click on this Haibun. I’ve written plenty of haibuns in the past leaning properly into the rules and forming my prose around nature. However, this time I chose to use my creative license, as the redheaded poet in charge of this blog, to write and share what pleased me.
