Just Wondering


we become pen pals at the ages of twelve and thirteen. it’s fun.

on a trip to Europe I visit. the languages become challenging. we are in our early twenties. it’s still fun.

we laugh. talk. joke. drink beer. and go sight seeing.

on a side by side bus trip she mentions she will marry soon. I ask about marriage in Norway.

she grins quietly and says, “You wish to push my leg?”

I sit up. I think uh-oh. wait. we are not even touching.

now she says, “Maybe that is wrong. I get confused between push and pull.”

I look into the lightness
of laughter

This is my response to the Flash Fiction Story Prompt: (Fractured) Sayings for May 30, 2014 on the Claudette J. Young At Home site.

My response is in the form of haiga and haibun. Two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.

  • Haibun as I see it is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku. 
  • Haiga as I see it is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
