Morning glory

osanago ga
ikutsu saita to
yubi orinu

a little child
bend her fingers
how many flowers in bloom.

Oh yes, nobu san, this is excellent.

I wrote a similar one that did well in the Shiki kukai and was anthologized in Dust of Summers:

morning glories
in the chain link fence
an inmate's fingers

Your painting is beautiful.

Thanks you for sharing this.
