Anatomy of Memories: Five Haikus

ANATOMY OF MEMORIES 

#1 
Wooden heart atop 
Trembling tiles of vertebrae 
Thatched eye weeps July

#2
White wind caresses
Fossils of summer leaves born
From forest fires

#3
The motionless dusk
Spills the dust of old incense
Like girlhood secrets

#4
Thirteenth rainy year
Our turquoise paper boat must
Now in Shanghai be

#5
Sun rises homeward
The campfire remnants lie
Like Jap’nese letters
