I’m no hopeless romantic. My mind has always won over my heart, making it always realistic. I don’t look forward to forever. I choose to relish what I have today. I don’t believe in love at first sight. I believe love is a constant, daily fight. I never thought I would fall for you. Actually, I do not want to. I always dreamed of loving someone I barely knew. Someone that is not you.
But time, fate connived
like a tree’s last leaf, I fall.
Our story was born.

Back story: This is a non-fiction account of my own love life. 😀 My almost six-year boyfriend is actually a childhood friend. And… the haibun above says it all. ❤
Hi! Happy Haibun Monday to you all. I hope you all have your heartsready to pen a romantic haibun. I think we all have romance in common: a first romance, unrequited, summer love, lost love, forever love…
You can write this easily. Remember, a haibun is not a work of fiction, it is true. So please share with us a romantic episode or time of your life.
Our romances are like a movie or the most mundane ordinary thing in the world. I want you to please think and pull out your best romantic (or funniest or saddest) haibun ever. Please give me one or two tight paragraphs with a true classic haiku at the end – nature based with a cutting or pivot in the second line. The count will be 5-7-5 but some do write short-long-short.
