FOUR HAIKU

 

1.

 

When do I see dark

staring at  me and my life

Does it know me well ?

 

2.

 

Distanced across the

fertile valley of homeland

I recall dim pasts.

 

3.

 

This child is my now

and then; that child is his own,

Return him to now.

 

4.

 

Now we see through here

darkly; gone backwards to pain,

Little failure stays.
