Senryu

mother’s recipe

not quite 

the same…


***


tyre mart

after the service

I listen to his jargon


***



blasphemy 

the way he tears down 

her cooking 


***


selfie

they synchronise their smile

the young couple

Tanka

washing rice

the way you used to

I remember the smile 

that curved on your lips

when you called my name


***


following me

the creek in the bush

at my tired pause

it too becomes one 

with the trees
