whisper the wind

first day writing new letters in the same old journal a hymn the only accompaniment rain drumming the roof ***** just in time it stops raining first cherry blossoms spring wind ten thousand frog croaks collapse a rain-soaked silence ***** at the shore our footprints erased in the turn of the tide clouds here and there into the horizon ***** the day's heat lingers after dusk shuffling the cards over and over listening to the morning news i brush tangles from my hair **** outside her window one hundred evergreens whisper the wind his boyhood home in the tangled garden only the wind ***** in the hour before sunset cricket song again filling the clear cut early morning the bright red barn subdued by fog **** winter sun shines down on the deserted playground that snowflake into the muddy puddle without a ripple ***** all the hues of the rainbow are in it this winter sunset new year's day the amaryllis flower almost open *****
Note: This selecton of haiku and senyru was originally published in 2000 as a gift booklet to family and friends at Christmas.
