Evening Bells
fireflies in the garden
of a foreclosed home

`

news of your death
when I open my eyes
green leaves

~

scorching sun
drying herbs lose their
healing strength

~

the sound of her voice—
where does a firefly
go during the day?

~

billowing cloud
summer rain makes
a tentative halt

~

somebody’s porch
with red geraniums—
passing by…

~

a page torn
from my weekly planner
slow day

~

summer monsoon
cracks in the parched earth close up
during the deluge

~

parched tongue
ahh, for a bite
of minazuki

~

temple bells toll
as her life goes out...
summer moon

~

cooling wind…
rattan chairs in the garden
waiting for me

~

light heat
the old man ensuring
his umbrella

~

promenade
under a circus big-top
the ringmaster

~

chit-chat
behind the Taco Bell
calm evening

~

ghostly sundown
shadows on the garden wall

a fragrant breeze

~

in full day…
summer thistles up
my hand hurts

~

summer fog
the only sound
a buoy

~

burning hot
the village pond
with wrinkles

~

pine cicada
I call you on the phone
just to hear it ring

~

your silk night gown
guides my hand

sliding down cloud peaks

~

always the sun
between them in the paddies
Satsuki

~

south wind
from my window I watch
our apricot tree

~

waterfall song
quenches my thirst—
view from a train

~

Summer rain
friends for a moment
under an umbrella.

~

smoldering hot
beside the trail marker
an animal skull

~

Yellowstone
water fall spray wets my face

the touch of your lips

~

straw mat
dog finds a place
to calm down

~

Tsutsu-Hime
the fragrance of dew
on rice seedlings

~

summer drought—
dust devils swirl
across the desert

~

billowing clouds
fading into the east
this day will also pass

~

hopscotching cloud peaks
yawing days
between birthdays

~

brief relief
a thin patch of
summer grasses

~

tired neighbour
gives me the bucket with
the trouts he caught

~

Father’s Day
untying the ribbons
on my haiku

~

Fossil leaf
a caterpillar tries to weave
their silk cocoon.

~

the evening sky
awash with sunlight

summer solstice

~

shoelaces
to match his tie
Father’s Day

~

wild iris
I remember her manicured
hands

~

billowing clouds
skittering shadows
across the fields

~

slow dancing
to the oldies
bare feet

~

broken screen
on my side of the window
this moth

~

Royal cellars
the summer rainbows
are decanting.

~

minazuki
feeling a fever, I take
the snowy tip

~

summer day…
mowed grass-scented breeze
reaching my nostrils

~

nose to glass
in the aquarium
raining jellies

~

Summer storm
the arrow of lightning
a rainbow stretches.

~

rainbow...
on the table
a salad

~

in the shadow of
a summer butterfly wing
the lost Easter egg

~

burning sky
lady in red fans herself
with church bulletin

~

a humming
in the clear stream
Tsutsu-Hime

~

in her straw hat
she prunes spent flowers

the garden gate squeaks...

~

under cloud peaks
quiet waters
out of reach

~

dawn in the rice fields
their shadows’ tender embrace
Satsuki

~

driving home after
that night in the hospital
fawn in the headlights

~

In the moonlight
a spider weaving
a wireless network.

~
