Haibun - Passage d'Enfer

Passage d'Enfer

Trees twine like arches of a cathedral. I have brought
the three treasures - frankincense and myrrh melded

by the warm gold of a falling sun. I step through a
portal of branches, green mosses cool with the prints
of a deer
...a light muskiness remaining.
There, a single perfect white lily is rising
as if from a
deep sleep.

a strand of black pearls

from a dream
