Day 17 Wrinkles of Joy: Haibun Journey — View from my Window

From my window the driveway cracks are covered in powdery white, making lots of designs. I think about how little things can change the design of our lives. A wrong turn and we avoid an accident, a smile and we make a life long friend. My thoughts also drift to cracks … holding beauty and destruction. Cracks in the ice forming frosty white patterns, cracks in the dry ground forming intricate patterns. Cracks and lines in the face telling stories of life, joy and sadness.

white lines
follow scratches in ice
weaving dreams


gentle eyes
surrounded by wrinkles
stories of laughter
