A clump of nettles
Bloomed above the cement—

Glorious green!

My sweetheart is away,
But tonight
We watch the moon together.

Become the flame of my passion.

Winged words…
The peach trees are in full bloom

In my home town.

a moment of yours 

a moment of mine– 

distant fireworks

his photo 

concealed in my heart

calls forth a firefly
