Blind To Me – A Haibun

Blind To Me

 

Why don’t you see me

I carry the flag for you

How clear can it be

I am neither a spectre

Nor am I invisible

    Ooooh straight to the point, and so true. Neither spectre nor invisible, but sometimes…people are deliberately obtuse, sadly.

        Haha! I am telling you: You are way ahead of me. I can’t write a haibun. You can 🙂

        Yes you can! You only have to count syllables. Yours would be stunning like everything else you write. By the way, have you published a copy book of your poetry? I would love to buy a copy.
