WORD BRIDGE ~








Word Bridge
Keiko Izawa
Ed Markowski




petunia

father's first laugh

in the nursing home

k






spring sunlight. . .

in the baby's toy box

long lost key

k






cold morning. . .

the sound of pouring tea

fills the room

k






Earth Day

  my grandsons plant

    a banana Tootsie Pop

e






winter funeral

  beads of holy water

    freeze in mid air

e






Manhattan Sunset

  the street magician's

    first trick

e






heat lightning

  the thin white line

left by a spaghetti strap

e






biting into cucumber

       the mountain winds

       touch my cheek

k






autumn breeze

    a dragonfly skims sunlight

          off the pond

k






filled bent rusty and wobbling

  not a single drop spills from

    the old monk's bucket

e






fog I embrace my remains

e






temple bell

  the dust I kick up

    sticks to me

e






pacific saury

the scent of ocean

in my dishwater

k
