*

the tattered scarecrow:

a raven perches

on its shoulder

*

fireflies . . .

sparks from a hammer

on the anvil

*

spring dust

sparrows squabble

in the forenoon

*

a dry leaf

on the ground . . .

a death’s head moth

*

a silent gong

inside the pagoda . . .

breaking dawn

*

cicadas’ abacus. . .

Grandmother

counts her beads
