If the flame of a dying candle is used to light another, 
then the light will never cease to shine.

by the roadside

laying near the
side of the road
– a rabbit –
will not see in
this Chinese New Year

Misty Rain

shrouded in misty rain - the harbour
perhaps the city beyond is just a myth

A New Month

I turned to a pigeon 
sitting next to me
at the outdoor cafe.
"It's a new month" I said
"A new what?" 
he replied then
asked "have you 
finished with 
that muffin?"
