Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge No.64

This part of Colleen Chesebro, the Fairy Whisperer’s Tuesday Tanka. I have long wanted to try a Haibun so I have written one below, it includes a Tanka so I think that is within the rules. 

Not having tried this disapline before I hope it’s not too far from the bar. It is infact for me a New Experience.

The words we have to use synonyms for are Experience and New. I have used the synonyms for the words in the Tanka, felt for experience and morn and another dawn for new.

 Flight From Fear

I sit here in the silence,even the traffic has not started it’s heavy thundering.

Lonely, not from the lack of company  more from emptiness inside. Strange how it gnaws at me, a real pain.

The room is silent and clam not even the ticking of a clock. Quietly the dog moves in her sleep.

I see no tree lights

Lost here in the chill of morn

In flight from night frights.

I have have felt all this before

This is just another dawn.
