Haibun - Moon-Viewing Terrace

Moon-Viewing Terrace

A young girl, I peer through the lattice
window onto the moon-viewing terrace.

Streams flow over the stillness of rocks.

With no moon, I hear a hushed cry, then,
gentle murmurs surrounded by silence.

light breeze -
a peony drifts
through darkness

Haibun - Childhood's Green World

Childhood's Green World

Barefoot, I cartwheel through clover as
sunlight filters through ferns casting lacy
shadows. At the pond's edge, I gather froth
with both hands. How I love the bubbles, the
way they reflect the leafy trees, cool in the
summer heat.
