This is the first Haibun I have written if you are interested check out the link above
It was mid-Autumn a time when mushrooms were plentiful on the farm especially if there had been the warm rain, we all would go out on the farm and gather mushrooms in our bucket.This particular year there was a shortage of them so some that were over ripe were picked to feed our family of seven. Some of those mushrooms were not suitable for eating never the less they were cooked.
With the results even now the thought of ever eating mushrooms at all, especially in a white sauce turns my stomach inside out, and I can still feel that belt that thrashed my body, leaving welts all over it.
Eating whitebait still reminds me of those white maggot looking grubs floating around in the mushroom sauce.
