    thorns stand erect--
    protecting their
    ruby red treasures

    morning rain
    my grandson fingerpaints
    his father's face

    persimmon tree
    loaded with fruit
    ... birds' winter meals

    White dew -
    one drop
    on each thorn

    Buson

    soft breeze rattles umbrella leaves -
    tiny wasp ponders me

    the canopy
    from the ground
    leaves dancing with lights

    After the tempest,
    all around the stock-still village
    upon the wing swalows

    dew
    deposited during the night --
    on my doorstep, a yellow rose
