Murder in the Morning?
(a mini haibun)

Was he awake
before dawn?
Did he miss the
spiraling of blackbirds –
(when I went to get the
morning paper – dreading
to read the headlines…)
Wings like folding chairs
setting up for or
being taken down after
a funeral in the winter sky…

yesterday was all
rain, the creek rose, the sky dull;
time marched like blind men

  1. …can’t be original here because I too love the idea of those folding chair legs being compared to wings….spread them wide and soar! 🙂

  2. as the others have said – the idea of wings like folding chairs is wonderful – and really sets quite a vivid image 🙂
