On the hydrangeas

the weight of the morning sun

the evening sun


---Otsuyu


barbecue scent mingles
with children’s laughter
inside their fence
outside, two homeless kids
share a burnt burger

Thank you all very much for your kind words. This is a candid portrayal of life with its dual light and dark side which sometimes we don't want to be part of.
