Japanese Style Landscape

Vapor wings emerge

Incense-breathing dragon bred

In earthenware pot


A cooling zephyr

Capsizes Genmaicha raft,

Teacup sea claims luck


Mystical cadence

Affords the heart’s hollow eyes

Unclouded vision


The morning air sleeps

While I daydream over a

Cup of honeyed tea


(then I took a dark turn)

In his eyes the eve,

The madness of laughing clouds

And rainbow puddles


The streets are his veins

His slick asphalt dreams, escape

Heroin highways


Submission for

Carpe Diem
