Miyako Yamada: Haiku

Grandmother’s tomb –  
a tree frog sits  
on her carved name peonies in bloom-
  where an old mansion
  once stood
Mountain stream –  
on a rock . . . in it trembling  
a fallen camellia This Grand Shrine -
  my open palms up towards the sun
  of winter solstice
In the park  
a heated swing  
forgot to move  


Masako Ito uses the name 'Miyako Yamada' when she writes haiku. She is editor of The Mie Times and a representative of the Ise Haiku Society.
