112. A Year Ago: Katrina

sack of rice —
the contents flow out
through a hole

[This poem I wrote last September (2005) was based on a dream I had at the time. It later reminded me of the effects of Hurricane Katrina with the breeches of the levee and how the people poured through meagre evacuation routes. Also, many folks died, pouring through a hole into their next world.]

Very good haiku. I think you should write this one into a haibun.

Thank you Collin...interesting idea. I've never written a haibun for a concept such as this. I did however write about a hiking adventure back in April:
