Winds Are Calm

A son shoves money in his father’s hands (after his mother refuses) at the security checkpoint. You cross the Mississippi in the dark.

One thought on “Winds Are Calm

  1. I love that the haibun features two locations: at the airport and in a boat (and yet, they are both transporation hub so there’s a link here). The haiku is superb and links to the prose perfectly. In the prose, we have the movement of the money going back and forth, and in the haiku the the boat drifting closer to the boat. Not sure why the haiku is set on one vertical line, but I do like the fact it gives the haibun lots of white space. Great haibun.
