It was a perfect late autumn afternoon this Saturday last when my son and I took a drive out to The Oasis in Austin for a libation and a chat. The wind was brisk but the sun warmed our faces, and the view was stunning.
I noticed that our drinks looked beautiful in silhouette against the backdrop of the lake and distant shore and took out my camera to snap some pics.
It took a few moments to get the angle right and include the shadows, and there was some grumbling about the delay. While waiting to drink his delicious Dr. Pepper, the Musical Millennial threw down this off-the-cuff haiku.
perfect photo op…
“ok, time to drink!”

I appreciate this good anecdote and haiku.
Thank you, David. It was a lovely day, and a very fun moment when my son blurted out that haiku. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. 🙂
