knowing the way the old Bedouin draws lines into the desert sand  

published on Asahi Haikuist Network 09-18-20

道を知っている 年取ったベドウィンは砂漠の砂に線を引く

lost and found

the raven on my shoulder

no longer a stranger  

first published on hedgerow: a journal of small poems #132

行方不明になり見つかった

私の肩のカラス

もう他人ではない

not a single firefly 

curious who turned off

the last light 

一匹のホタルもいない

誰が最後の光を消したかに

好奇心を持つものは 

bridal spirea blossom— breathe in breath breathe out

花嫁のシモツケの花— 息を吸って息を吐き出す
