Another of my Haibun FreeStyle pieces.


Thank you Debbie Guzzi for questioning my original title, and its meaning to this poem. I think I may have clung to it for sentimental reasons. I hope the new title makes more sense.

Where the sun beats on dry cracking plains like an anvil. Where Winter’s frozen fingers strangle growth. Where sweaty shirts cling to mortal skin. Where humanity stands on a deserted beach, or waits in a crowded queue; that’s where we live. Savour the moment Hungrily consume essence Let flavours explode Biting Life’s experience Expires quicker in sun
