"He sets adrift in little paper boats
Word-gold of his beloved beaten
He paints pictures
of a great white horse
These he throws onto a river
that carries them to drown
in the sea."
- Little Paper Boats
"On the path to the point...
Three sounds only:
The soft thud of my footfall,
The loud-sounding surf,
A solitary cricket's chirring.
Further on, the chuff of chaff-cutters
- Long Reef After Dark
" Night: an empty beach,
Young grief downed in the surf's roar:
Salt air, salt spray...salty tears:
A breaking heart eased of pain."
- Three Tanka: The Sea
