Written in the tankabun form.. developed by myself and EW Richardson about two years ago I believe. It is similar to the haibun with distinct differences. It uses a tanka (but only one) instead of haiku. And it expounds in prose what the tanka begins. Haibun is intended to define a journey while the tankabun define a single moment.... but that too depends on the writer. I do hope you enjoy!

Before

Sun drips onto sky
Splashes purples and crimsons
Across horizons
Mother Nature pauses, winks,
Before she claims sun's brilliance

And we watch, awed by her creativity. Marveling at the artistry. Sighing at the beauty. Admiring the colors. Enjoying these moments spent with a pocketful of time and a handful of memories. Listening... always listening... to the last avian chorus before stars rise to light this newest journey. Before velvet claims the moon. Before night plans its own canvas for dawn. Before the silence is the only sound we can hear.....
