Haibun form of Poetry- I Travel

The below poem is something about  travel (real or imagined) using the haibun form .Haibun form?What is that means?Okay,let me give a small intro before I give a detailed post in my Exploring Poetry on the coming days

Haibun is a combination of prose and haiku poetry, sometimes described as 'a narrative of epiphany'.I thought about a topic about travel.I have already written some in another form of poetry like the Train,Titanic ship,Desert...So I came up with this idea

I Travel

I travel so fast, flying high in the sky. I sailed over the rainbow, studied the colours of the sky and played with the wind. I am a kid again. Yes, a kid with an uncontrollable desire to learn, scrutinizing each and every thing that comes in my way.

On sky I travel
With my magic wand 
I paint butterfly

"Come on, it’s getting late. Get up”. My mom was waking me up.” You have to go for your  School exam”, she said. I slowly opened my eyes. I was awakened from my dream.” What exam?” I thought.Ah! Well, in fact this is what I was trying to do de in my dream writing, painting, and stuffs like that but it was much more exciting than this real stuff called exams.

I got up, did my cleaning, and got myself ready to go to my college. Before me on the table, I saw my pen, my lucky pen that my dad gave me for my birthday. It had a butterfly picture decorated on it. In an instant, I smiled when I looked at it.Hmm…Again, I thought “Is this my magic wand? “ LOL...I hurry up to the door.

To my School I walk
Lucky mascot in my hand 
My butterfly pen
