RENKU
 

Dream Time: Shisan
 

rain at dawn
stills the song of cicadas...
my dream continues
tm
in paradise... I find it difficult
to open my eyes
sv
a street musician lost
in the Elysian Fields, his hat
full of coins
tm
***
the square fountain
reflects the neon lights
tm
passing slowly
through the fluffy clouds
autumn moon
sv
shadows of ripe citrons
precisely on the sidewalk
tm
***
the eyes of the Buddha
over the suspension bridge
one toe at a time
sv
in the frosty store window
a pearly necklace for her
tm
from the immense sky
sinking into nothingness
this lonesome night
sv
***
the contour of a traveler
seeking inner peace
sv
floating swallows
cherry blossoms drift
in the same direction
tm
a bunny's nose deep
in the grass, the blazing sun
sv
