Under the Bashō 2017

 

in the pond
the moon meets the lily –
a summer rendezvous

 

a jackal howls …
ghost stories spook
my grandmother’s home

  

jacaranda flowers
strewn on the empty bench …
dusk already 

 

snowflakes:
the grandson gifts her 
a popsicle mold

 

forbidden mangoes …
          I tiptoe into childhood
in my daughter’s stilettoes
