I Testify

For JusJoJan day 28. I wrote this pretty much stream-of-consciousness style. It turned into a haibun.


Carl Sandburg called truth “the most elusive captive in the universe.” Even I don’t know everything about my own spirit, but these writings are a testament to the fact that I exist. Revived Writer: “J’écris, donc je suis.” This is the world through my eyes. Look inside.

Mes yeux ouverts voient
L’immense lumière de la nuit
À travers les cieux

 

Link to Carl Sandburg’s poem here.
The haiku translates to: “My open eyes see / The immense light of the night / Through the heavens.”
