Aichi Prefecture Board of Education Award, Nagoya City Oct 16 2010


Moonlit night
cutting across shapes of trees
cry of a fox

My haiku above, was chosen as Second from amongst all haiku submitted to KO Magazine, Autumn-Winter, Spring-Summer issues, by Koko Kato editor. First place taken jointly by James Kirkup and H.F.Noyes, both of whom died this year. The poems were read at the 29th Haiku Gathering held by the Ko Poetry Association Nagoya City.

James Kirkup's and H.F.Noye's joint first place works were as follows....

Half moon drenched in stars
slowly sinking out of sight
in covers of clouds


Season's end---
all the autumn colours
in one leaf
