by Masago: Rengay #45 (Jul 6-12, 2008), Verses 1-5 (of 6)
City park — azalea petals among / cigarette butts.
Charred forest remains — pink fireweed blossoms.
The front lawn, long and going to seed — beds of gout weed.
Weathered stump — a green sprig emerges / from the moss.
A rusted bottle cap — clumps of brown lichen.
