Haiku

I have been writing haiku since 1984.
Published in Japan in Moinichi’s Haiku in English (The Mainichi Haiku Contest 2010 : 3rd prize for Haiku in English, November 2010) ; Moinichi’s Annual Haiku Selection 2010 ; as well as Moinichi’s “Haiku in English Tsunami Special” (2012).
In Canada my haiku were published in “The Grammateion : the St. Michael’s College journal of the arts” (2012).

***

Desperate days –
among twisted rubble
cherry white blossoms

***

To your swift heart beat
the whole universe spins webs
of love and tender

***

Fall sneaked upon me…
phantasmagorias of leaves
in spirals of wind

***

Water shimmering
brings a herbal tea promise
your body fragrant

***

White crane’s flight and its
great wings every flap makes me
follow you South my love

***

Walking bent forward
I’m holding to my old hat
spinning on the wind

***

Revisiting hell
reflection of cold iron gates
through your loving eyes

***
