Walking along any street at any hour before midnight in a tourist town, is to walk through a miasma of human intimacy.  Hundreds if  not thousand of people, each in their own little group talking.

“… and I said, “Listen I’m not ready …”

Ready for what I wondered.

“… then she let out this horrible shriek …”

Did she see a mouse or was this something more sinister.

“… the Americans have done it again!”

Oh my, now what are they up to?

Bits of life, bits of personal experience jumbled stories.

summer afternoon
oceans of experience
in tiny puddles

  1. I love what you did here, Cara, capturing snippets of tales I always find fascinating too on beaches, boardwalks, and cafés. A beautiful haibun…that last line made me smile, summarizes your whole story…tiny puddles. Très bien, ma chère!


  2. The passing parade. Fascinating. I like how you’ve done this – overheard snippets giving a window into individual lives which are so big. I often think about this. We each experience the world with ourselves at the centre, yet there are so many centres – so many individual lives, all with their own story.


    • I like how you think Margaret, because I’ve found myself thinking along the same lines… Those snippets of conversation are sometimes so poignant .. you could create a whole story or poem thanks to an overheard bit of conversation.
