Junicho : Wisteria Burst

       

wisteria burst
a row of kids cross-legged
along the playground

dw    

birds sing
in drunken treetops

sd    

below their bridal suite
two foxes
resting on the lawn

wb    

he'll always keep it,
her long fluffy scarf

dw    

cool shadow
of the spreading chestnut
over the hot past

sd    

as the messenger waits
faces tremble

wb    

on Noah's Ark
all cases packed
ready to leave

dw    

past on the mast,
first shivers on the ocean

sd    

crimson dahlia sways
as creaking swings
grow silent

wb    

on the wooden bench
the old man's presence

dw    

wires twitter
as the sun sinks
shadows on the hills

sd    

a yellow car speeds
beneath an icy moon

wb
