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
remains...


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
