crescent moon
the vendor
slices a melon

    kenkoku no hi
    comes and goes --
    today, was no surprise


    one by one
    grackles, more with heads upright --
    soon the sun rise


    red roses
    the fragrance of her hair --
    so clear

    water melons piled on
    the pavement
    first signs of summer

    No money...
    an old bagger savours
    the fresh crescent

    half-formed words
    darkness falls ...
    ... waning moon

    even the moon has forsaken me
    predawn --
    a solitary star
