Kasen From Day To Day
March 1-21, 2006

Flores, Mule



from day to day
archipelago inches 
southward for brightness (Flores)

  glacier front recedes northward
  collapsing into the sea (Mule)

broke up
a May Day rally
drifting balloons (f)

  wind across the rice field
  gently strokes a baby's cheeks (m)

coming home
with a truckful of harvest
moon over the family (f)

  a leisurely chat on the terrace
  a scent of fragrant olive (f)

people cheer marathon runners
until they disappear
behind the Parthenon (m)

  they are beckoned to red lights
  of the Palace of Virgins (f)

a Chinese heroine
mesmerizes audiences
Geisha made in Hollywood (m)

  knee how? oh, it’s
  getting better after Turin (f)

on a day like today
Yaji-Kita duo must have started
the long journey to Ise (m)

  step by step in parching heat
  el Camino de Santiago (f)

a convoy of buses
heavily loaded on tops
fades away in dusk (m)

  then the man sees a pigeon
  carrying an olive branch back (f)

the typhoon is gone
the moon shines in full
a hunch something good to happen (m)

  you’ll see Humpty Dumpty
  on the Great Wall of China (f)

there lived an old man
who sprinkled ash and
made dead cherry trees bloom (m)

  deadly fallout rains down
  silent spring at the site (f)
ナオ
oh spring breeze
blow away dandruff
on my shoulders (f)

  unload the burden of life
  enjoy the present moment (m)

Pedro totters home
with a bottle of rum
banana boat (f)

  sad to say I'm on my way
  I had to leave a little girl (m)

sailors change vessels
girls are to change seamen
seagulls of Kingston (f)

  sound of gunshots
  Chekhov's curtain came down (m)

smokes go up
on the holy riverside
that is that (f)

  the sun scorches the desert
  vultures make circles above (m)

ringwanderung
freezing snows biting winds
Mt Hakkoda (f)

  monkeys soak in the hot spa
  making red faces more reddish (m)

bathed in moonlight
the pyramids are asleep
beside the pale sphinx (f)

  a white power pylon overlooking
  mountains of red and yellow patches (m)
ナウ
the harbor is full
of sardine boats and fishermen
an autumn daybreak (m)

  anchovies on a pizza
  savor Mediterranean (f)

roar of sushi catering bike
fades toward
the new town (m)

  sunshine is good for hill tribes
  to have an outdoor party (f)

is faint gradation
spring haze or cherry blossoms
far in the distance? (m)

  salade de printemps is soft
  in a white porcelain bowl (f)
