August 13th

new coolness seeping

through the cracks makes my skin quiver;

green grasses wither

August 10th

remaining heat feels

heavy, dry; it persists like

summer that’s sad to leave…

August 9th

small seeds of grasses

in your hand are a promise

of next season’s wealth…

August 8th

coming of autumn –

it creeps in with shorter days

and nights of full moon…

August 7th

the sky, the water,

even the wind blowing low –

all carries afterglow…
