Haibun: 79 words


by Peter Jastermsky

In Column A, there are earthquakes, fire, and mudslides. In Column B, no less than tornados, drought, and locusts. Column C offers hurricanes, thunderstorms, and blizzards. Nostalgic for the past? Pick the ones of interest: pestilence, plague, smallpox, and so much more.

It’s a large menu! This is just a taste. If we’re lucky, we get to come back for seconds.

traveling light
a glow of decay
fills our steps
