1. Flies

    When flies hover, buzz

    And land, death and decay

    Follow in their wake


2. Fog

    Ah, the thick fog lifts,

    Revealing the same boring

    Gray asphalt dragon


3. Forest Fire

    The flames lick the bush.

    Twigs spark, crackle. Fire spreads

    Its gospel of rage!


4. Frog

    (after Basho)

    The frog is croaking

    Loudly in the pond. No one

    Hears. Wet as silence.


5. Geyser

    The geyser spouts

    Hot steam in the air. Is it 

    A kind of earthbound whale?
