Shiki Kukai - Allusion

The free format theme for the April shiki kukai at haikuworld was 'Allusion'. Literary allusion attempts to expand the meaning of a literary source. Allusive variation (in Japanese haiku) attempts to parody other well known haiku, but for this shiki kukai, it is allowed to parody other literary souces.

My literary source was a haiku by Gary Hotham.

And, oh yes, my submission managed 3 votes. :)
