Under the Bashō 2017

 

retirement...
a jamboree of crows
every morning

 

frost on the grass
the slippery slope
of old friendships

 

fleeting youth
the shimmer of the ballgown
in the closet

 

raking leaves
neighbour’s footsteps
dragging his age

 

spring storm
a trickle of rain
the trickle of time
