Haibun: 71 words
By Norman Silver



A word given to me in dream.

... the elevator not stopping at the top floor, a python slithering from the dog’s mouth, flying with arms outstretched, a child plucking marigolds, evading bullets from a gunner, the man leaping off a cliff, the laughing uncle, a temple site pitted with deep holes, a woman pleading to be married, a bright light descending from the clouds...

awakening fragment of a Chinese vase
