Hiroshige's Hawk

This is Fay Aoyagi. She has helped us a lot with translation from Japanese.
She always adds something special and thought-provoking to any haiku gathering.
I liked the way she looked here, with a golden halo. You can tell
from the mustard and the ketchup that we are in an eatery--
probably after some haiku meeting; 
part of the wonder of haiku groups is the fellowship!
high autumn sky
I ride on the back
of Hiroshige's hawk

shroud of moss
I step into the land
of the ancient tales
