on my answering machine

    "another year"
    __ Since 1981 I've reached to touch her photograph… she must know that she has been missed these many years.

    that heartful smile
    shown in her last photo
    a touch

    A poem with emotional touch.

    return from funeral–
    my mother’s voice
    in every room

    winter soup–
    I remember the way
    my grandmother hums

    冬のスープ-
    私は覚えている
    おばあちゃんのハミングの仕方を

    My mother's gone now,
    not at my dinner table.
    A whippoorwill calls.
