The Ligo Haibun Challenge – Flower


She lives in a country, which has six months of darkness. Though she is accustomed to nights, she yearns for the sun. The dim street lamp illuminates the garden, from where a lone rose stands out. While admiring the rose, she hopes it would live to see the sunlight.

Your unmatched glow

Lights the darkest of nights

I pray you live forever

  1. A sad touch to this poetic tribute…and one finds oneself hoping the flower does make it to the summer…tried accessing this through the link but couldn’t. I can link it again if it doesn’t work.

  2. 6 months of darkness.. there’s a beautiful feeling in this piece.. how one could care for a rose so much.. and you made the readers really hope for the flower to live to see light
