Childhood memory – haibun for dVerse

The school sick bay is cool and quiet, and I’m so sleepy. The wallpaper is a complex repeating patterns of swirls and curves in blue and green. I’m half awake and making patterns out of it – an owl, a woman, an owl, a woman. I wish I could look at plain white walls. I wish I could close my eyes.

Swirling blue and green
Of clouds and sky and wild sea
Waiting for nightfall
