Kikaku’s ‘A Flock of Swallows’

The inspiration poem:

~~~~

above the sea

           a rainbow, erased by

      a flock of swallows

                   Kikaku

~~~~

 

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

**

****
