Smorgasbord Poetry – #Haibun – Circles of Life by Sally Cronin

For the next few weeks Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge  is on hiatus as Colleen sells up and moves home which is very exciting.. She has asked that her regular participants continue with their weekly poem and I shall do just that. It is poet’s choice, so this week I have decided to combine the prose and verse of a Haibun.

Circles of Life – Sally Cronin

I walk through circles created by the drops of rain in the puddle of moonlit water. Like the cyclical movement of my life since birth, some of the rounded shapes are clearly defined. Others are blurred as they radiate outwards. Always seeking something. Where they merge with larger circles they are absorbed and become part of a greater entity. Some just make a small ripple that is barely noticed. I disturb the water with my feet, briefly distorting the outlines. But, within seconds, they resume their radiating formations as if I was never there.

Water comes alive
As raindrops break the surface
Creating chaos

Thanks for dropping in and I hope that you have enjoyed this week’s musings…Sally

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at
