Carpe Diem Crossroads #2 the summer moon

a thousand gallons
shower from the eaves…
cherry blossoms                       © Issa

it touches the line
of my fishing pole –
this summer moon                 © Chiyo-Ni

my fishing line
dances in the moonlight
stirring cherry blossoms

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

morning glories
entangle the birdbath
alas poor robin

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