It’s Haibun Monday again, and American Haikai Master Frank J Tassone asks us to join him at the dVerse Poets Pub and create/share a Haibun (prose/haiku combo) incorporating some “Heart” imagery…
Some babies are deformed at birth. Some don’t get to be born at all. Sometimes, when she’s found wandering around aimlessly downtown, Grammy might have to spend hours (or even days) in the Emergency Room’s waiting area while the police try to find out who to call to come get her. Not everybody pulls over to let the ambulance pass by. Surgeons do their best to exude confidence, even when they aren’t.
Not all news is good.
It’s not just the cardiacs
that have broken hearts.
(I know; I know: technically it’s a senryu closer, not a haiku, but…)

How very heartbreaking.
Powerful and sad.
Poignant. And some people have no heart at all.
extraordinary thoughts poignantly expressed.
I love the way you approached this phone Ron. I have been thinking a lot lately how mean and aggressive most people seem to be these days. It’s as if they’ve lost their heart. It’s very sad 😢
A poignant write Ron. Bravo!!!
Sometimes it seems like its broken hearts all the way down…(K)
Sad circumstances well shared.
Well done, Ron..
A senryū works fine in a haibun, especially here.
Truly a heartrending haibun.
To truth my bother. Chronic disease in a family touches each member. I am now feeling my wife Kathy’s cancer, officially confirmed today by the Oncologist. Now her journey back to health begins for us. BTW, I like your senryu my friend. I closed mine tonight with a tanka. Hybrids are beautiful.
How can such heartbreak produce beautifully crafted ink? Sad songs say so much.
Very well done, Ron!
That fills my heart (o – and hang the rules)
Ah. look at all the lonely people… (made me think of the Beatles)
Your haibun grabs me in the heart!
Extremely poignant piece Ron ❤
Poor Grammy. May someone come pick her up quick.
