lost in the cornfield (haibun – troiku)

She noticed the sky changing and told her friend she must go out to take some photos. But her friend told her to wait the sky would turn a darker pink soon, “You’ll see, it was merveilleux last night!” Twenty minutes later, she notices the sky is just getting greyer..DARN!! She ran out to take a few shots, hoping to salvage a nice souvenir of this evening at her friend’s home surrounded by mountains and cornfields. Ducking a few times from soaring and gliding birds, she actually felt she had intruded on Mother Nature tucking in wildlife.

lost in the cornfield
dimness descends slowly
overwhelmed scarecrow

lost in the cornfield
scurrying with glee
field mice play

dimness descends slowly
sun dips behind Mont Bromont
pause in despair

overwhelmed scarecrow
sparrows zooming overhead
pompous feathered friends

  1. After growing up near mountains and now living on farm in corn country, this sounds like the best of both worlds…that scarecrow doesn’t realize how good he’s got it 🙂
