Five Haiku



Brightly, vividly
March is born
Deep within the clouds

–Iida Ryuuta



Midnight in June
Tearing through my home —
a golden horse

–Kaneko Minako



The landscape of the body
Circled by a falcon

–Kawana Tsugio



Parent and child laugh
with all their hearts
cutting paper Christ

–Murai Kazuichi



The work of
wiping off the church’s
cold chairs

–Tanaka Hiroaki
