IBMC #4: Hunt a Haiku Challenge

The task is to take this quote and make meaning out of the following haiku:

the sun will set slow
people go home for shelter
sun will rise again

The day was over, and the sun was gaining an orange hue on the western sky. The day had brought the waters into the homes of hundreds, and, fortunately for the inhabitants, it was taking them back with it. The homes themselves were in horrible states, but what could they do? With the sun slowly receding over the horizon, reflecting itself in the waters it had brought, the day was done. What little was left of what they called home would have to do as shelter for the night. And after the night, a new day will come, and a new day was always better than desperation.

IBMC #4: Hunt a Haiku Challenge

When I close my eyes, I see myself as a writer. I see a pale blank page in front of me and feel a solid pen in my hand. I feel inspiration flowing through me, hear the words being whispered in my ears, ready to be written. And I see myself writing them. So, I write. And that is why I am here right now. To let the world know that I want to become better at this. That there is this unbelievably naive living in this corner of the world, who wants to have people help her become the best she can become. My focus is actually on fiction. I dream up stories in my sleep, literally. And I can't help but want to write them. Knowing English only as a second language is a drawback, though. I still try.
