nd 5.24 consternation conscripted 3p – Jules Pens Some Gems…

#Haiku Happenings #3: Jules’ latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!

consternation conscripted (99 word haibun)

rheumy eyes water,

no roomie, in roomy home

no celebration?

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…
