Waning moon

1/
waning moon
as I let her go
to the past
the grief I keep

only for my self

2/
dusk--
counting the days
she spends solitarily
quietly, lengthen and fade
the shadows of leafless twigs

3/
morning mist
faint murmur from the deep
primeval forest
so much to decode
in her sleepy eyes

Paper boat and drizzle tanka

1/
tell me, owl
about nothingness
under this roof
a sheer monotony
of midnight drizzle

2/
love
is sacred
lightly
he sends a paper boat
down the river

What's left tanka

what's left
by the rain today
this chill
i feel on my skin
you on yours

Midnight cricket haiku

midnight crickets
knowing you, like me too, like
nothing else matters

Naked moon

never before
I found it so tantalizing
naked moon

Heatwave haiku


1/
heatwave--
if only I could comprehend
mother's grief

2/
she loosens
her grip on our oath
lingering heat

3/
slightly it goes
my laundry line down
the heatwave
