Senryu:

 

bed time…
she asks if her rag doll
can stay up late

 

Simply Haiku, summer 07

 

就寝時間...

彼女が聞く 縫いぐるみ人形は

遅くまで起きていてもいいの

 

 

senior citizen’s club
women with hair in all colors
except gray

 

Simply Haiku, summer 07

 

お年寄りのクラブ

あらゆる色の髪の女性たち

白髪を除いて

 

 

circus clown . . .

show over, he pulls down

his painted smile

 

3 Lights Gallery, spring 2009

 

サーカスのピエロ...

ショーが終わり、彼は引き下ろす

厚化粧の微笑みを

 

 

coffee lounge . . .
we act out each other’s
bored look

 

Simply Haiku, summer 2009

 

コーヒー ラウンジ...

私たちは態度で表す お互いの

退屈した表情を

 

 

health clinic…
deep in thought she chews
on a carrot

 

Simply Haiku, autumn 2009

 

診療所...

物思いにふけり彼女はかむ

人参を

 

 

acting like his father
the child’s face
becomes hard

 

Simply Haiku, autumn 2009

 

父親のようにふるまい

子供の顔が

厳しくなる

 

 

Saturday night dinner
the guests all-consumed
with their own stories

 

Simply Haiku, spring 08

 

土曜の夜の夕食

お客さんたちが皆使い果たした

自分自身の話に

 

 

birthday —
as usual he remembers it
after I begin to sulk

 

Simply Haiku, spring 08

 

誕生日 ―

いつものように彼は思い出す

私がすねり始めた後

 

 

CONGRATULATION

you’ve won $5,000,000,000 USD

I count the zeros

 

おめでとう

あなたは米ドルで50億ドルを獲得しました

私はゼロを数える
