Charlie Corporate

This is my first post for the first Haibun Thinking – a new Haibun Writing Challenge. The prompt I chose was:

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
– Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

His rise through the ladders of work left him breathless.

Time out for marriage that was for sure.

There were kids his wife assured.

No one mentioned this unfairness.

***

One more time he had to check this corporate allure.

Corporate Gods before all.

Up, up towards that impossible goal for sure.

With all this some say he had a lot of gall.

***

Once there, everything had been left behind.

But no one was there to see him now.

He thought he was a gift to mankind.

But in the end he wasn’t even the cats meow.

Carpe Diem Haiku — Volga River

Volga River

As Paulo and Hilal are departing from Moscow it’s late in the evening so it could be very dark and I think they didn’t saw the Volga that night, maybe they did saw it reflecting the lights of the TSR or the moon … we don’t know, but what we know is that they crossed for sure the Volga.
Our journey continues and we will go deeper into the Soviet Union the next days and weeks, but it is for sure an adventure …

the strawberry moon

reflections flood our small room
