The Rehearsal: A Haibun

Alexa was a bit of a prima donna.  She was known throughout the marshlands for having the sweetest serpentine voice in all the land, praise which went to her head.  As was her practice, she met the Pixie, Sudaflax every Tuesday for rehearsal.  Things were not going quite right this week, however.   Every time they got to the crescendo of the Queen of the Night aria, Sudaflax hit the same bad note, flustering the soprano.  “This is your last chance,” she hissed,  “Mess it up again and we’re finished.”

Just One More Sour Note
A Noise He Could Not Abide
She Bit – Pixie Died
