published haiku


dragonflies hum


 Fujisan’s mirror


Fujisan Haiku Competition (International Section) special recognition, Yamanishi Fujisan World Cultural Heritage Conservation Council



in winter sunshine

man and dog hurry past

these old gravestones


(originally published in Painted Words anthology)


outside my window

snow-petal’d Mt. Fuji

lemon-scented gums


Fujisan Haiku Competition (International Section) award of excellence, Yamanishi Council for the Promotion of Mt. Fuji as a World Heritage Site



night coolness

grass-whispers to the moon

frail, sweet, as lovers’ vows
