5th Selection, February 2011


sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt

fog swirls, overtakes

the gibbous moon the wine cups

are no longer full

ironic name the

great pacific war a soldier's

son attempts haiku

sidewalk concrete bears

witness to the ghosts of leaves

lost to autumns past

ever so gentle

the winter rain fujiyama

wears down to the sea
