Summer Grasses

This is Bill Peckham at the Hakone Gardens ginko, June 6, 2006. 
Bill is a veteran of the military and faces many challenges squarely.
He writes sonnets and other poetry as well as haiku.

In my garden,
nurtured: bonsai. Small pockets,
yet cool, deep… tree shade

William H. Peckham

Autumn evening--
it's no light thing
being born a man

translated by Robert Hass

Summer grasses,
All that remains
Of soldiers' dreams
