Free love

Today is haibun Monday over at dVerse poets pub and I’m not really moved by the form today. But I did get to thinking about the best things in life being free, which is the prompt. Honestly I cannot get a Beatles lyric out of my head whenever I turn my thoughts to this. ” the best things in life are free, but you can give them to the birds and bees. Give me money, that’s what I want”. Heh. Could be an indication of the financial abundance coming my way, but not helpful in a haibun sense. Still, I wanted to write something for the prompt. So I came across the idea that unspoken things are free. Or rather, their cost has nothing to do with money.

Like unspoken things
That pass in clasping grasp
Of grandparents glance

  1. Good haibun. the senryu at the end is excellent. I understand that bad things in life are free and that those things break your heart – like the death of your dog when you were a child, when your girlfriend dumped you, etc. etc. etc. I am sorry the form did not speak to you today but am glad that you went ahead and wrote something. I appreciate that very much.
