Short Poems
Late autumn –
this old tree
makes a sparse encounter

     Crows and Full Moon - Ito Sozan   
Lamp posts –
Random encounters
in the morning fog
Sprouted a kite
this tree, 
since the last time!
birds’ wings
in the evening
An ocean –
in the morning mist 

The ocean at twilight – 
old men bent
over buckets and lures
Spring night –
on the bedroom rug
The singular song
of a cricket
paused in mid-stride;
evening breeze
through the window
