morning mist drifts
as the night stars

    sea fog surrounds me
    with a cool embrace--
    smaller world

    Shiki Masaoka

    We cannot see even the moon.
    And rise big waves.

    late winter morn -
    full moon, low in the western sky
    the tiniest of birds
    lands among the green leaves

    the night sky
    a blanket of white

    sea lions welcome

    evening mist
    cools my sunburned back--
    moon tide shod my feet

    Howling December winds-
    Rattling at doors and windows
    Trying to get in.

    morning mist
    the whir & hum
    of the coffee mill

    Mist drifting -
    a few new-born children:
    the mountains
