Haikus (2)

The morning breeze takes

A dying old man’s breath-leaves

And dew-drops tremble


Of shadow and its absence

Petrifies the sun

Yonder break sea-waves,

And like those twinkling stars, they’re

Whispering silence

A smile breaks on her

Lips: crushing the whole world with

Lightning and thunder

Mortified spirit

Resurrects from a cold grave

It’s Mr. Moonlight

Arms outstrechted, praying,

The blushing IR-8’s are

Waiting for the rain


The Art of Leaving

Your handkerchief is wet

With a salty tears

That I cannot forget

Like deadly arrows that pierce

My grieving heart

But I have to depart

AGG March-April 1967


A Whirlwind in a Dream

Once the blue water was

In the curve of the stream;

There it was tangled as

A Whirlwind in a dream.

Once I had a happy life

But now I have sorrow,

And on my heart a knife

Which might fall tomorrow.
