My roses budding -
this year I won't be here
to see them bloom.

    spring field
    the buds have shown
    their wonders

    mist--
    clings to
    rose buds

    warm breeze -
    looking for signs of spring
    on bare trees

    peach fuzz
    ...like teenager's
    first whiskers

    clinging
    to my rose buds

    A haiku moment:
    the roses are just blooming
    under our glances

    garden thicket--
    reaching for light
    three rosebuds

    ten years'
    hard study threadbare

    death on the vine -
    on this day
    i am in mourning

    -

    tomorrow having come
    spring's newbirths -
    leaving me behind in winter

    -

    thirst
    flower in the desert ...
    lonely

    (over hearded)

    sheer-white clouds
    opaque-blue morning sky --
    love song playing

    trembling bloom
    pollen covered bees hang in the air

    never, having heard your voice
