#Haiku Happenings #3: Jules’ latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!
consternation conscripted (99 word haibun)
rheumy eyes water,
no roomie, in roomy home
perhaps he thinks it’s enough
to be alive and breathing
This Memorial Day weekend, some waists may expand. Others may feel the waste of space – due to social distancing. All the flags, placed…perhaps hundreds of candles lit to remember those who have fallen. Maybe that will be enough help win this new war on the world that keeps us sequestered and separated?
Navy man bucks up
thankful for all of his friends
as he sits…alone
Maybe he’ll make it three more years for his own hundredth birthday to celebrate…
