Water, Earth, Sky

When the surface of
The lake is a sheet of glass,
And the V-shaped ripples
Made by the swans which pass,
Tremble the mirrored clouds
Billowed above autumn grass...

Numb But Safe

Unable to escape,
Instead she hid,
Dropped her emotions
Off the grid...

The Human Condition

Geo-political spat,
Couldn’t get solved
By the diplomat,
And things then
Tumble into war,
The same one they
Fought many years before...

Post-Event Posturing

After the crime, the police
Strut, all serious and armed,
Meaningless, since the victims
Have already been harmed...

Happy Time

The magical afternoon
Hour of four
Offices start to empty
Beers begin to pour

Shinagawa Shiodome

Resting my feet,
A form of meditation,
In a canyon of steel, concrete,
All echoes and reverberation...

Finessing The Issue

A bad day, where less was received,
As compared to what they gave,
Is best handled like a boat
Surfing over a passing wave...
