Haiga 471 J.W. Hackett haiku

Haiku by J.W. Hackett. Artwork by Kuniharu Shimizu.

Matsumoto san, a good friend of mine, was a singer and a song writer. I supported his concert several times. His son and daughter are also great singers, too, and they took parts in the concert. The son is getting married at the end of this month, and my wife and I are asked to be the matchmakers, to which we are really looking forward.
Matsumoto san, however, collapsed when his brain bleeded heavily at the end of last year, and last night he passed away.

A bitter morning....
a family of sparrow on a branch
without chirping
