Haibun - A Sunday Almost Night

A Sunday Almost Night

Down by the jetty I sit as the sun dips
into the distant ocean, crossing the nearly
straight line between sea and sky.

It vanishes slowly, leaving rays of light
in peach and rose, soaked up by cotton

As they pass above me, hastened by a
cool wind, I head back home, the sand
still warm beneath my bare feet.

moonless night -
the sky becomes

day's shadow
