A Kikobun*

Blazing summer with fire rain is knocking at the door in our part of the world. Sweltering heat will sap our soul. How would the words flow? Ah…we wait for you dearest Jasmine Nights…


Blooms of perfume made

Sing their song in fragrant words

Drooping souls listen


*Kikobun is a literary form similar in format to haibun

"feeling alone"

feeling alone

in the woods around Edo

just the autumn wind


The murmur of ginkgo trees*

My invigorating soul



*The ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba) is considered a living fossil. It has no known living relatives and has endured for millions of years. The ginkgo is one of 170 hibaku trees that survived the atomic blast of Hiroshima that took place in August 1945. Despite suffering extensive damage and predictions that nothing would grow for 75 years, the trees fully recovered. For this reason, ginkgo is attributed with being a symbol of endurance and vitality.

My soul awakens

To their mellifluous hue

Forget-me-not blooms


Forget-me-not blooms

In every cell of my blood

When I think of you


When I think of you

You whisper in petal voice

Forget-me-not Ma
