crossing the stream
on the next stepping-stone
a tiny frog

    dawn, cross my patio
    blue jay
    leapfrog's the other

    Awaiting
    the jump of the tiny frog,
    I chain-smoke

    a frog
    dressed in fog--
    jumps to the moon

    frog
    a green bubble
    in the dark water

    whorl of amber
    tiny frog
    suspended leaping

    Haiku from Albania

    The spring breeze.
    Whitness of plum-flowers,
    poplar's jealousy.
