Very impressive sting in the tail. Congratulations.

Very sad, and haunting. If this is an experiential haiku my heart goes out the parents.

This haiku reminds me of Chiyo-ni's sad poem about her son.

all my very best,

Alan

Thank you so very much everybody. And Alan, this is based on a true incident which had me write many poems about it, both haiku and haiga and even haibun. I'll tell you the whole story later.
