A Small Crop of Vegetable Ku

        sunday brunch
          with the in-laws
          the taste of pepperwort

          returning home
          all the lettuces
          have gone to seed

          pulling up
          the last few carrots
          chimney smoke

  1. falls slowly
    about the new paddy
    the cold drizzle


    empty streets -
    the downpour surprised
    all vehicles


    every morning
    leaving their feet on the
    windows -
    my dogs


    now the time
    keeps silent -
    my dogs
