Favorite haibun of the winter-spring issue:

Shades of Absence

An old friend of mine was camping in the Montana wilderness. Over
the course of a morning, he noticed how empty the sky was. Not a
single contrail. Not a single plane. That’s the story he tells, his memory of 9/11.

                        summer’s end
                        all the color
                        bleached from the yarrow
