Ikuyo Yoshimura


( Gifu City, Japan )

harvest moon
which pampus grass
arranges to cool his desk

through the mist
from the field
the echo of the waterwheel

insects chirping
disappears into the dark night
a private path

art student
arranges early pears
on the tray

the elderly men
chat at the path
Chinese lantern swaying

I also pass by
my dead dog
autumn night

autumn midnight
tea cools
in strong color
