on every streetlight
twenty pigeons

    midday overcast
    crane's perch ...
    dimmed streetlight

    wire lines
    the birds line themselves
    up for the night

    Power breakdown -
    the whole street brighten up
    from the white pidgins

    drive down dusty road --
    catching sight
    of faded rainbow

    a crane reflects self
    in green waters ~ a parrot
    hovers in delight~

    two puppies play~
    crows flutter random ~
    swans dance light~

    monkeys watch sky~
    sparrows sing lullaby~
    squirrels cleave space~

    on the street
    life's litter
