    An unexpected drawing
    out of the window pane:
    she herself

    Not just the rhythm, but even the graphic shape of the haiku seem to picture an endlessness.

    widow's death
    her bali bamboo bell
    beats through the night

    rain, rain, rain
    pounding on my door ...
    the winds whisper, "there's more"



    -

    street-light
    through my darken window --
    tree's shadow flee through the storm
