    midsummer evening
    lightning flash through the clouds --
    train rumble, somewhere

    Summer holiday -
    again and again, the children draw the sky
    on the side walk

    lovely image


    trace of green
    chalk drawing
    vanishes in the downpour

    daylight moon,
    pristine sky among
    uncountable stars
