hatsu-yume ya kane mo hirowazu shini mo sezu

first dream of the year
not finding money on the road
not dying either

debate night
one dog barks
then another

E

the everywhere
of wild carrot
wayside moon

carrot

 

glowing embers
I start my story
from the end

F

forsythia –
misspelled twice in the poet’s
yellowed notes

clearing storm
a ewe flicks a fly
from her ear
