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…)

  1. 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.
