a haibun published in World Haiku Review and selected as a definitive example of the genre by Ray Rasmussen, haibun editor.
One hesitates to choose one haibun as outstanding among a body of good, heartfelt writing. . . . First her use of description is strong, I can visualize the scene . . . .Second, the content . . . in this haibun we see an interesting clash of two cultures, Amish-old and modern poetic. Third, we are treated to both the sensory as well as the inner workings of the author’s mind. Fourth, it contains poetic writing . . . one that particularly caught my attention and admiration is: “We meet treading time as if it were water . . . .” wish I had written that!
