morning stillness  
the white orchid growing
in a coconut husk

fog lifting  
a mahout talks
to his elephant

a piercing cry
from the early street
'brooms! brooms!'

waiting for the ashes
the mourner feeds
a temple dog

11 a.m.
tree sparrows clean
the dog's rice bowl

Thai yard sale  
a basket of mangoes
and a banana flower

distant thunder
a lone dove preens
under the lettuce tree

almost dusk
in the window
a Buddha's silhouette

evening meditation  
on the garage roof
a sound of claws

September dawn
in the medicine cabinet
wall-lizard eggs
