Iris ~ a haibun

I don't want the world to see me
I don't think that they'll understand...Iris plays as I click on the link. You say it reminds you of us. It's April... many years ago.

Today I walk in a strange country ~ seas, silence and a lifetime between us. Angular concrete towers and cameras keep watch over each passer-by. Clockwork of Traffic marches to precision. I stop following the blue dots on the map and take an unmarked path. I stumble on a bed of blue iris and the one memory that still haunts me.
