Under tree shade {series} kyoka / tanka




under tree shade

spring anxiety

that cocoon

has butterflies

in its stomach



under tree shade

contemplating

I understand

the gravity of the situation

falling apple



under tree shade

the previous dreamer

forgot his dreams

where mine

linger now



under tree shade

ancient poems

spoken in the hollow

resounding

in the bark



under tree shade

warm union

I don't care

to see

the rest of the forest



under tree shade

I hitchhike

leaf to leaf

the way

to the sun



under tree shade

the private affairs

of a squirrel family

they are

nuts



under tree shade

the pages of T.S Eliot

fly like a bird

perched

upon my nose
