    Pruned War of Words

    Pare down a pear tree
    Compressed arid autumn fog
    An abandoned nest

    Sake Song

    Trained seal sing a hymn
    Drunken solemn vows of love
    Winter bears its claws


    Bullet's blinding wings
    Winds of sorrow fire your strength
    Prairies simply end

    Kabukichu at Shinjuku

    Strictly reptilian
    Escapable ambition
    Running on running

    School Girls of Tokyo

    Subway or full train
    cell phones adorned with  dolls
    New Kabuki masks


    Daiei full'f fruit
    Prices soar all sizes shrink
    Packaging divine

    Gardens Well Kept

    Road to heaven guards
    Buddhist temple Shinto shrine
    Blessed rice crop with rain


    Mother Teresa
    Destitute of Calcutta
    Face of God appears


    Rolling hillside plight
    Fading reed source tambourine
    Summer apricots

    Math's Path

    Cherry orchards bloom
    Sparrows mate nested circles
    Theorems crow cry
