Hemlock pollen-
the scent of your hair
in the wind

polline di cicuta—
 il profumo dei tuoi capelli
 nel vento

ヘムロック花粉
あなたの髪の香り
風の中

half moon -
my husband tonight
doesn’t sit at dinner

mezza luna-
mio marito stasera
non siede a cena

半月 
今夜の夫
夕食の座にいない

frozen haze -
the breath of a runner
flows beside me

nebbia gelata-
il respiro di un runner
mi scorre accanto

凍った霞
ランナーの息吹
私のそばを流れる

separations . . . 
the axillary buds 
of the tomatoes 

separazioni…
le gemme ascellari
dei pomodori

Cattails october  2021 

分離
トマトの
腋芽

worn sticks 
left by the tide ... 
meet again by chance

bastoncini consumati
lasciati dalla marea…
incontrarci di nuovo per caso

磨耗したスティック
潮によって残された
偶然にまた会う

bells through the tinnitus an Easter in a minor key

campane attraverso l’acufene una Pasqua in tono minore

耳鳴りによる鐘の音 マイナーキーのイースター

small coffin - 
the wind ruffles the petals
of a white hyacinth

piccola bara-
il vento scompiglia i petali 
di un giacinto bianco

小さな棺
風が白いヒヤシンスの花びらを
波立たせる

meditation-
a cabbage soup 
eaten in silence

meditazione-
una zuppa di cavoli
mangiata in silenzio

Spazio Zen- Winter 2021

瞑想
キャベツのスープを
黙って食べる

in yin and yang
that contrasting point…
Indian summer

tra lo yin e lo yang
quel punto di contrasto…
estate indiana

Spazio Zen- Winter 2021

陰と陽に
その対照的な点
小春日和

my face
as it is not -
round mirror

il mio viso
come non è -
specchio rotondo

Cold moon Journal -December 17, 2020

私の顔
私のようではない
ラウンドミラー
