War aftermath



hopping around
bomb holes and shrapnels
one-legged dove

Letter of goodbye

under the willow
she rereads his tear-stained
goodbye letter

Greener pasture



on to greener pasture
a family of geese flies over
the double barbed fence

Unkempt lawn



my neighbor mows
the grassy edges
of my unkempt lawn
in the shade I try to write
this friendship poem

From my book, 
Haiku and Tanka Harvest

Widower's gardeb


widower's garden
her roses blooms
side by side with weeds

Hospice doldrums



hospice doldrums
she gazes at the bird
flying to sunset
