Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 27 – “Light & Dark”

Light and dark  – what great prompt words from Colleen this week.  I’ve always been fascinated by the interplay between light, and darkness.

Here’s my haibun inspired by a paragraph from my current manuscript: The Curse of Time, which I am currently in the process of editing….

Sinister Tinge

The Black Obsidian paint pot called me next, beseeching me to open it. Just like before, it refused to do so. In frustration, I slammed it down hard. The pot exploded with a loud bang like a child’s burst balloon. As I dipped the brush into the paint, a gripping sensation overcame me. I painted in haste with a multitude of dissolving crystal paint flecks staring back at me from the canvas. A dark grey, bluish black, sinister tinge blemished the artwork. Shades of varying hues moved across the painting competing for supremacy in a powerful duality of light and darkness.

Black kisses,Rich with Flecks of lightness,Mesmerise and puzzle,Tattooing your family'sHappiness dark. (1)

 

Ohhh, that’s a bit dark… but wherever shadows linger there is bound to be light.

  1. According to the rules of writing a Haibun, it looks right to me. I loved it, Marje and it is a great introduction to your upcoming novel. Well done, my friend. I know what it’s all about… sorry singing again. 😀 ❤
