One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

autumn morning -
steam rises
from the cherry tree
distant storm
she salutes her dad
please come home soon

shadows lengthen
a crimson leaf rests
on the sundial






Serendipitous
we watch the rising sun--
grazing cattle and I
first light
heading toward the car
I pick up a sweater

totem poles

autumn wind
native totems guard
a lonely cove
deep autumn
my neighbor
how does he live

Basho
