One Man’s Maple Moon: Windswept Place Tanka

 

I try to put
the words of the wind
in my poem
this windswept place
reminds me of you

試圖
將風的話語放入
我的詩裡
這個風吹雨打的地方
使我想起了你

试图
将风的话语放入

使我想起了你

UHTS The “Samurai” Haibun Contest, 2017 Honourable Mention

Changing Trains

 

I board the late night train. I agree to hold a fellow passenger’s baby while she sorts out her bags and finds the baby’s things. The woman is clearly flustered, and she sighs heavily as she searches her bag. The swaying of the train sends me off to sleep. Next thing I know, I awake to find the woman has disappeared along with her bags and bottles, and I am holding a wriggling baby who is starting to cry with hunger.

 

 

tight little fists
on cherry tree twigs …
hard frost
