Matto

Carpe Diem #1159 Matto, birthplace of Chiyo-Ni

Sample poems by Chiyo-Ni

Grazing
my fishing line —
the summer moon.

From the mind
of a single, long vine
one hundred opening lives.

Again the women
come to the fields
with unkempt hair

drinking gourd  points
to where Chiyo-Ni’s bucket
once stood

Jan Zaremba

morning glories
entangle the birdbath
alas poor robin

again just the moon
stays to keep me company
long sleepless night
