The Sun Will Indeed Shine Again – A Haibun

The Sun Will Indeed Shine Again

There have been two memorable occasions in my life where I almost fell to my knees to give thanks for a job. Both were presented to me at extremely difficult times.

In those moments I had almost given up hope for a change in my luck.  In one instance I had lost direction in an endeavor and was desperate to get back to what I knew best.  In another, my world as I knew it, had been turned upside down and the rug had been pulled from under me.

Both new opportunities were offered to me by amazing people I had never met before.  Their warmth and kindness, not knowing what had brought me there, was genuine.  I felt the gentle push of the Universe as it cleared the path for me.  I will always be thankful to those people and companies.

Sunshine surely comes
When you will least expect it 
Because it’s meant to

Sun – Compound Word Verse


Breaking the night in orange glow
Rising in the sky but still slow 
is sunlight

Streaking though the limbs of oak trees
Catching dust particles with ease
are sunbeams

Dancing on water’s gentle waves
Sparkling diamonds memory saves
as sun-kissed 

Tanning bodies on sandy shores
Skin soaking in lotion one pours
for sunburn 

As the day wears on it sinks low
Towards the west it now must go
to sunset

Grace is hosting D'Verse Poets and she has prompted us with
Compound Word Verse.  

The Compound Word Verse is a poetry form invented by Margaret R. Smith that consists of five 3-line stanzas, for a total of 15 lines. The last line of each stanza ends in a compound word and these compound words share a common stem word which is taken from the title. (In the first example below the stem word is “moon” from the title “Moonlighting”; the compound words related to the title are moondust, moonbeams, moonsongs, etc.)

The Compound Word Verse (3 lines) has a set rhyme scheme and meter as follows:

Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b
Syllable/Meter: 8, 8, 3
