“Acceptance,” A Haibun

JOIN US EVERY TUESDAY

Welcome to my contribution to my Weekly Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of “gift and song.”

I closed my eyes when I felt the energy from the collective enter my soul. Like a surge of electrical impulses, the song of a thousand melodies echoed like waves in the atmosphere around me. I held out my hands ready to receive the vibrations.

“I see you.” The words empathically spoken filled me with joy. I had been recognized and accepted by the realm of the Meliae Nymphs. It felt good to be home once again.

The songs of the nymphs –

in tune with the collective,

a gift from the gods.

  1. Good vibrations, indeed! <3

    • I just listened to a free Hay House recording of John Holland called Perceiving vs. Receiving. I’ve decided I’m clear sentient as a clear feeler and clairaudient. The poem flowed from me with no effort at all. I love it. <3
