    Hiroshima sun--
    a little boy in the playground
    screws up his eye

    The dragonfly adds another.

    sixty one years
    counted by the koi
    a dragonfly

    Hiroshima Day
    a circle grows larger
    above the koi

    "in flanders fields".

    "in flanders fields the poppies blow
    between the crosses,... ; and in the sky
    the larks, still bravely, singing, fly
    scarce heard amid the guns below.
    we are the dead. short days ago
    we lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    loved and were loved, and now we lie
    in flanders fields".
