  Shisan: Autumn Equinox      
  autumn equinox ...
a figure at the window
of an empty house
David Burleigh  
  new neighbors content
swallowing soba from him
Hirofumi Hatsuzawa  
  fife and drum
passing along
the shopping arcade
Tateshi Tsukamoto
 
 
   
  my daughter wanting to ask
how we fell in love
Hiroshi Tamura
 
  hands move together
over the clock face
by the winter moon
David  
  a tengu somersaults in Mt. Takao
May peace prevail!
Tateshi  
 
   
  on an aged tree
blossoms once more appear,
the tree doctor
Hiroshi  
  birds vanish into the cloud
leaving a blue emptiness
Hirofumi  
  setting up mergers
establishing new teams
baseball chaos
Tateshi  
 
   
  for the grilled eel
such a tipsy waiting period
Hiroshi  
  suddenly awake
in an unfamiliar room
dreaming of you
David  
  over the stone temple steps
a cat's long stretch
Hirofumi
