Selected Work
sheltered from the wind
in granite fissures
the nightingale . . .
how can you photograph
its song                                
summer's end
the whistle of wind
through a bamboo flute
white gardenia
our summers end
too soon
long night
the broken branch
a crow turns into
cranes fly east
taking the mist
over Mount Fuji
