hot afternoon
the dusty road
coats my tongue

feeling guilty
I bury the mouse
beneath buddha

breathing in
shadows pass over
the mango tree

abandoned shrine
the wishing well
fills with stars

high tide
the old man runs fingers
through his reflection

---------flying into darkness
---------the bat's echo

on the fishpond
ripples -
autumn wind

ski resort
the tourist's first snow
man made

from the cliff
sea mist stretches
the reflections of stars
