Fig Newtons

I have always loved this picture of Eugenie Waldteufel and Garry Gay
that I took during a California book-launch event for the book of senryu
Fig Newtons, 1993. which was edited and published by Michael Dylan Welch.
Perhaps it is something about the slant of Eugenie's parasol.
Eugenie is gone now, but Garry is just attending the HNA conference
in my birthplace, Schenectady, New York. Wish I could have gone! jhh

Fig Newtons won an Honorable Mention in the Haiku Society of America's
1994 Book Awards.

And below is one of the senryu.

afternoon mail—
the stamp from Australia

(Sorry, I couldn't get the author of this
particular senryu from the Graceguts website
and my copy of the book is in an unaccessible archive. . .)
