  1. I like this. It ends with a great “plot twist” and the Haiku literally gave me a shiver. Very good sense of aware. Honestly the first Haibun I’ve liked. No sense of the melancholia or morbid memories that identify the form. You saved it for the end.

  2. You see much more than I do on my morning walk, other walkers and joggers with and without dogs, lots of birds, building sites beginning to fire up, night watchmen and early arrivers stretching and scratching , unlike your sea the lake is calm and placid just as beautiful in its own way the tranquility of it probably reflex my advancing years, just a thought.

  3. This has an old feel to it, Andy. Like a long ago memory, while you were young and becoming acquainted with the “ways of the world.” I liked the haibun. It was a little abrupt, not as sure drag queens is still not as human sounding. Am I wrong to think this may have changed. . . (?)


  4. Thanks for reading 🙂 This was a fresh memory for me – in fact I wrote it upon returning from my morning walk and ‘meeting’ the drag-queen/crossdressser/transvestite… not sure of the appropriate word, but I hear all of the terms used without malice on occassion 🙂 I do love seeing the last few stars in the sky, just before the sunrise. I like to imagine those philosophers and celestial observers of ancient Roman time joining the stars, to create the constellations we know today.
