Summer Ongoing

On the veranda
Too hot to sit down

(Simultaneously published at POETS The Original)

This burning sunrise
A quiet meadow in green
Oh, chasing rabbits

Erlkönig morning
Highway in darkness and mist
Dreaming of breakfast

Ryoanji garden
Sitting amidst rocks and moss
Spring roll in the mind

(Selected by Isamu Hashimoto for The Mainichi in 2014)

Heron flys slowly
Crosses the motorway
To dive into the valley

The old mill
No grain in decades
Cherries ripening

Wind to outrun
Thunder and rain
Giggling cicadas
