Was banished to the garage.

A Little Girl Cries

A little girl cries
Porcelain doll lies broken
No solace for tears

A young woman cries
Heart, soul, and dreams lie broken
Oh, to be a child

Day dreaming… My mind refuses to see The real world… Half asleep… My reality broke free From the strain… Eyelids close… The meaning of living here ASTOUNDS ME! Half awake… My dreams are so spellbinding PINCH ME, please?

                                         as the sky of the nature

Haiku and Senryu with the Japan Tremor in view

Their eyes  well   with   tears  

Tremors   have   crushed  tomatoes 

In  Kunamato  

Waves  of the  earth  howled

Successive   days   and  nights rolled

Crisis   loom   in   soul  

Quake  flattens houses

Southern  Japan   collapses  

The serpent hisses

Souls  shake   in  Ozu

Our   dear   friends   we   feel   for  you

Time  weeps  in   pain-dew

Our   deep   sympathy  

From  Soupers  empathy   too  

The  world  is  with  you
