Night Zone

Activity ends
Birds go quiet
As darkness descends

Right Before February

Mutsuki morning,
Cloudy, bleak,
Covering the Sun
The Daffodils seek...


Nothing alters more one’s mood
Than an encounter with
Some delicious food...

Bottom Line

What we really think,
We cannot always say,
Unlike the rich,
Who can pay to play...

The Way It Happens

Sometimes the best
Things a day can confer,
Have no reason,
They simply occur,
And the rest
Is just a blur...

Smart Birds’ Demise

Bitter cold in Saitama,
Black dots on the snow,
Each one a frozen crow,

No food to eat
Unable to fly
Crows at their end
Under a leaden sky...

Get Up Get Ready

Early morning
Round about five
The apartment building
Comes alive
Pipes pop and sigh
With flow and flush
As plebeians prepare
For a hard day’s rush
