rising river steam
cathedral bells chime
out of sych

early morning

dog walking

steam rising

A linked renku with Su Wai Hlaing

new life

flows inside my daughter

as mine ebbs


fresh new leaves are symbols of 

another new beginning 


barley

the grain grows and ripens

then harvest


summer breeze carries along

smell of harvested barley


hammering

from a distance 

my late father


reminiscing my childhood 

my dad was the best singer


lullaby music

baby is listening

to silence

summer reclining

an ant

crosses my mind

dead alcoholic

which was the drink that killed him

probably the first
