Travel poetry

Autumn, sea and shore
06/11/04 Otsuchi Bay, Japan

Cold breath, northern wind
Maple leaves turn into fire red
And die

Stone pine along rocky crags
Sea spray cool and sharp
Clear water and breaking waves
Strength and defiance
Tranquil and permanent
Japan's soul

Winter is nigh
The sea wind becomes ice
The pines still green and remain
Maples await spring
The seasons play
The game of eternity
