Blowing
out the candle
my room suddenly
lights up.

 

 

Through a heavy swarm
of wasps
falls
a white pear-blossom.

 

 

How many footprints
have melted
into the spring
waterfall?

 

 

As he swings
upward
the stroke of the woodcutter
is heard.

 

 

I did not notice
when the sound
of the crickets
had ceased.

 

 

Even the fish
have sought refuge
from the winter
rain.

 

 

Fallen hornets
scatter
into a thousand
hiding-places.

 

 

On the beach
at evening
everything I hear
speaks

 

 

Though they stand
straight up
every tree
points elsewhere.
