Beached

Red metal hulls rest
On soft white sandy beaches
Disowned by blue seas

Autumn

Autumn leaves curl up,
Shrink, shy away, flutter down
To a red carpet,
Scrape past on a dying breeze-
Golden tribute to green days

Morning

A pink orb rises-
Rose-streaked grey clouds, flecks of gold
Stain the morning blue

Tears in Japan

Tears fall silently
In earnest desperation
Cherry blossoms bloom
On soft aizome squares- held
By ikemeso danshi

Hiroshima

Life sprouts, verdant green
In defiance of scorched streets
しかたがない
