Tanka


the rancor in your eyes
and in your boyfriend's--
how can I
get rid of the albatross
around my neck?



petals fall
in the soft glow
of paper lanterns
-sakura at night
or the dust of moon?

More haiku


our leisure talk...
a butterfly forming
within its pupa


a prayer-note
against a blizzard
butterfly wings



green Sunday--
when did last we count
the dragonflies

Haiku


a ruru calls...
how long will
the last leaf last



clouds pile up--
hoping against hope
for a glimpse



your soothing words...
sip by sip
the storm disappears



back home...
pots of chrysanthemums
waiting

3 Tanka

how does one
speak without words...
once again
the twinkle in your eyes
breaks our silence



making the pup
learn rock'n roll
Elvis
cries hoarse all through
Thanksgiving Day



the cat
roams around apples
on a table--
how long can we chat
about the weather?

Tanka


concealed
between the cracks
my anguish
will the blizzard spare 
our prayer note

Spring Haiku


leaves in March
eye contact with my
new neighbour


still i
hang on to your thoughts
a broken dream-catcher


pale faced day
colours of Holi sticking
to your palm lines
