Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Last week I hadn't time enough to publish a new episode of Utabukuro, but now ... well I ran into a beautiful haiku by Jack Kerouac and I just had to create an Utabukuro episode about this haiku.
in the tree – dusk
In Central Park zoo

|Jack Kerouac (1922-1969)|
In this haiku the scene is just beautiful. The Zoo has closed and in the twilight the shade of a balloon caught in a tree looks like a monster or a ghost. A strong scene I think and the beauty of haiku makes this possible.

love songs on the piano
the little boy smiles and falls asleep -
the full moon
