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….
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.
Ohhh, that’s a bit dark… but wherever shadows linger there is bound to be light.
I have no idea if this is a haibun or not! LOL… hope it is. My first attempt so if it’s wrong, please do let me know.
