begins to sink
last call

    gently resting
    on the cemetery
    happy retirement balloons

    cherry blossoms
    on the bosom of mother earth ...
    fallen samurai


    raging waters
    how they flow --
    through forest and time


    death's embrace
    the ways of this world ...
    the fallen oak tree

    Red bands waving
    at the mercy of the wind
    a child 's eyes full of tears
