ESP and Common Sense

Carpe Diem #928 Extra-Sensory Perception (and Common Sense)


That terrifying dream.  The curve and train trestle underpass along Hwy 5.  Riding in a crowded pickup cab.  The train whistle and an engine bearing down on us.  Startled awake.  Several times the dream occurred.  The fifteen year old was bewildered and frightened at the same time.  Then the call came.  Daddy's cousin and 3 men had been struck by a train at that very crossing.  The dream was never dreamed again.

  5. Well that was very interesting indeed. But even better it fit the haibun format so well, with a haiku that was dosed just right. One feels for the men involved.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. The men were a farmer and his farm hands. Left four families reeling. It took 4 lives to get a warning light at the crossing.

  6. The dreamcatcher and ESP are a powerful combination, and the haibun fits the prompt.
