message in the sky (haibun)

This is certainly going to be a challenge with the 12 hour time frame and our time difference but so far, I have not missed the boat...Carpe Diem Time Glass, challengine new feature

Contrails


The very first thing that comes to mind seeing this sky is a memory of  early childhood where I truly believed my grandparents who flew down south would drop a postcard on their way and it mysteriously fell in my backyard.  Why would I not believe this tale since my father would come into the house, pretending to be out of breath, shouting, "Come see, kids, a special card from Nanny and Grandpa was delivered by a jet."  

So in the eye of that child that still lives and breathes inside me:

not so fast!
Nanny may miss my house
autumn leaves

as an adult, I acquiesce...

it’s time
writing is in the sky
autumn leaves


acorn nuts
squirrels working overtime
autumn leaves

    1. They are so busy just about now too...forecast this year is milder winter, hope so. But hey if they get hungry, they can always munch on the tulip bulbs ;)
