all saints day
light's cathedral
of clouds
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
communion host
for a moment I shed
isolation
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
night ravishes
the disconnection
between stars
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
east to west
haiku blown along
the scenic route
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
over dew
the rising sun
of the future
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
after dusk
a noonday demon's
'twick or tweet'
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
all saints day
a cathedral of light
on its knees
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
stellar crux 
scared no longer
sacred scars
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
All Soul's Day
a star's understudy
in the wings
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
this light
from Aldebaran
at my birth
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
at last
with twilit birds
the stillness
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
city rain—
a downtrodden moon
underfoot
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
errant breeze
child and laureate 
chase the same words
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
against the ropes
a city loses
its flavour
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
turbulent mist—
all that is to become
lost in becoming
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
denatured love . . .
avarice ages into
its majority
 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
on the altar
intoning incense
holy fire
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
on Gallipoli
the cannon fodder
of empire
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
be this
merciful as I am
imperfect
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
democratic might
fighting for the right to kill
without compunction
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
spring storm . . .
my roots, how deep 
do they go?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
spring deluge
terror takes on
my son's name
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
what bird is that
singing of light
yet to be?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
cosmic tide—
between coming 
and going
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
chaos theory . . .
a verb edges between 
subject and object
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Nanking bet—
a hundred heads roll
their eyes
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
fog-smudged
the melodrama
of sea and sky
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
behold him!
a desolate beach
being born
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
touchstone moon
enlightenment pales
under it
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
on her stillness
the disfigurement
of a fly's shadow
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
On Basho's death day -
 
cold drizzle . . .
dreams splutter upon
the master's lips
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
On William Blake's death day -
 
heaven and hell . . .
forgotten gods mouth off
from the human breast
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
On Richard Wright's death day -
 
spring wind
bringing back something
beyond recall
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
bread and wine . . .
a reluctant earth 
offers thanks
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
mantra rhythm
rattling peas 
in a pod
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
autumn deepens . . .
all the candlelight
aflame within
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
such stillness!
sun-shifting shadows
move the pine
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
