    a father and son
    the sweetness of reunion
    turns the sky true blue

    Hope he wanted to be found. That makes it really nice.

    I visited Tijuana often in the early 70’s. Your haiku brought that time period to vivid life.

    That he was found gives us hope.

  9. Great response on our “play-again” prompt Mark. I hope this haiku isn’t based on reality, was your son really lost?

  10. Wonderfully written haiku!
