I like to keep my promises and I promised Al I would give his Haibun challenge a go. Not sure I have got it right mate but hope so.
And this is my response using the prompt Gathering her brows like gathering storm, Nursing her wrath to keep it warm
Robert Burns :
Burning pain buried inside for so long, too long it is a raging flame of impossibilities. Questions of ‘what if’ littered my mind with no answers forthcoming to clean up the mess of a life splattered with disaster. Perhaps it is best if I end it, take that final step to oblivion and escape this malignant enchantment. A brief desperate thought as I gaze at her face and the beauty of her sleeping, the beauty of an innocent angel. I feel the warmth of passion brewing within me as once more she feeds my sense of wonder and the pain subsides like liquid sucked into a sponge. At last I drift into that dreamless sleep where everything makes sense and begin to understand.
burn with a sacred passion
and call it love
