Haibun ~ Don
One final lunge through an over-sized door and I'm in a stark and sterile
room. . . .
It was light when I entered, but as I lay on this gurney, arms spread
wide, I watch a drip at the end of a tube, not realizing once I blink
it will drop and darkness will fall with it.

Miller writes of himself: "I've been writing for a little over
20 years, but just now have started to listen to friends and submit
my work. I started out writing free verse poetry, then took a creative
writing class in college. The professor taught us tanka, which I embraced
immediately. Given my interest in nature, my writing evolved to include
haiku. The last couple years my writings have grown to include haibuns,
essays and short stories. My lone publication was a haiku published
in 1988 in An Anthology of Haiku by people of the United States and
Canada, a haiku contest sponsored by Japan Air Lines.
