passing showers --
a pail still brimming
 catches the moon

`

  winter rain --
one flowered umbrella
at the funeral

First Place
Shiki Annual Kukai, 2003


`

the hot scent
    of orange blossoms --
noonday quiet

The Haiga Pages


`

 his old flannel robe
   cut for rags --
the scent of musk

`
 

early darkness
the healing sounds of our
bronze gong

`

  feeling a chill --
the scarlet maple
spills out of itself

`

  almost home
more stars than leaves
in the elm

`

first day alone
rearranging gravel
in the Zen garden

`

autumn chill
an unknown insect
in urgent flight

`

  wooden footbridge
 dragonflies vanish
beneath my feet

`

   muggy afternoon
the same white cloud
as this morning

`

almost dawn
the first snow
 becomes the sea

The Daily Yomiuri

`

almost midnight
mom's crochet hook
warm in my hand

`

   milkweed pods
bits of silken down
in the breeze

`

wood smoke -
seeds beneath the snow
dream of spring

`

wildflowers -
an upside-down kiss
his head in my lap

`

  thanksgiving -
  old friends gather for
  turkey and tofurky

`

smiling back
we share the old photo
of us

Haiku Pacific Rim (HPR),  2004

`

autumn leaves -
children crowd around
the fallen nest
