The Līgo Haībun Challenge: MELT


My Dearest Emilia,

It feels like centuries since I last held you in my arms. Everyday, I pass Willoughby’s garden and it brings back fond memories of how we would sneak past the servants to meet there. Not that I need anything to remind me of you… of your lovely face bathed in the moonlight’s incandescent beams… and that kiss that has allowed me to catch a brief glimpse of eternity… However, I’m thankful for the handkerchief you gave me. I swear, Emilia, you were never any good with needlework. How you pass as a lady, I’d never know. But that’s one of the reasons why I love you so. I carry it close to my heart… I need something of yours to keep me warm.

I do believe there is a time and place for us, Emilia. One more understanding… An era more enlightened, free from the shackles of ignorance… A world not governed by the laws that has kept us apart…

A world where we could be.

When that time comes, my soul shall find yours.

My husband still believes that I could be thawed… that perhaps his kisses shall melt my icy exterior. He’s a patient man, but a fool. How is he to have my heart when I have given all to you.

Yours forever,

Candlesticks melted
By tongues of oppressive flames
Thawed but never gone.

Carpe Diem: Daily Haiku 50


His rumbling laughter
Above the loud city noise
Joyful symphony.

Yellow sunflowers
Lift their bright faces skyward
To sing joyful hymns.

Roasting marshmallows
The fire dancing joyfully
In those little eyes.

Flowers on my desk
Bursting with joyful colors
Rainbow explosion.

A schedules post ^^ Word for today: Joyful
