lnhammer: two saguaro cacti in a desert thornscrub landscape, with canyon walls behind (desert)
10 April

    Along the creek-bank
as the young trees bud and bloom,
    three old cottonwoods
dressed in mature green leaves toss
their fluffy seeds to the wind.

About

Warning: contents contain line-breaks.

As language practice, I was translating classical Japanese poetry -- most recently, book 11 (love part 1) of the Kokinshu anthology. This project is, however, on hiatus. Past translations are archived here. Suggestions, corrections, and questions always welcome.

There's also original pomes in the journal archives.
