Frankie’s audio diary. His climb up Granny Smith, Gala and Fuji trees for the unblemished, still hanging apples higher up. He and Lilly atop a mound of dirt; seeking pumpkins; racing through the village.

Tasting apple cider and apple cinnamon donuts after purchasing all of our produce. The sun on our faces, warming us just enough.

His haikai poetry has appeared in Failed Haiku, Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online, Contemporary Haibun, The Haiku Foundation and Haiku Society of America member anthologies.
