Kikaku’s ‘A Flock of Swallows’

The inspiration poem:


above the sea

           a rainbow, erased by

      a flock of swallows




My offerings:


across the lake

                     a cloud of gnats disappears

    into the swallows



outside the window –

a mockingbird, erasing

the silence




my joie de vivre – swallowed by another heat wave
