2105

a drop of dew
sits on a rock
like a diamond

treasure of morning coolness
before the sun grips today

ancient road…
the trails of the masters
absorbed in fallen leaves

bared twigs pointing directions
choices we now must reach for
• ˚ ˚ ˛ ˚ ˛ •

a stone for a pillow
me, just another cicada ...
so shrill, like crying


...........embers of a camp fire
yet, we pledge our friendships
• ˚ ˚ ˛ ˚ ˛ •

Springtime in Edo,
Not a day passes without
A temple bell sold.

pounding of hammer and nails
and old church bell is silent
• ˚ ˚ ˛ ˚ ˛ •




bamboo
waving candlelight into the night
wind

nights of Divali lightings
the flicker of deya flames
• ˚ ˚ ˛ ˚ ˛ •

under a weeping willow
