Haiga 847 - Kuniharu Shimizu haiku (senryu)

Haiku and photograph by myself.

The bus we rode had an interesting looking side mirrors in front. They looked like tentacles of insects. As I got closer, I noticed each one had three mirrors reflecting various directions. If you look carefully, a guy with a sunglass is in the mirror. That was our driver, a young guy who drove fast because he wanted to watch on TV a soccer game, Spain vs. Italy.

Just focusing on this man-made tentacle against the blue sky background created rather surreal scene, and I liked it. The haiku came right at the scene. Nobody but me in my group paid attention to this subject. But this is the kind of thing that attracts my eyes.
