This is Ellen Brooks. She is a dancer and actress based in San Francisco.
She studied kyogen and movement for manu years
with Yuriko Doi of the Theatre of Yugen in San Francisco.
Ellen has given dance performances at several of our Asilomar Haiku Retreats.
This one was, as I recall, the first one.
In the background, Carol Steele's embroidered orange kimono,
which often lends its beauty to our special events.

Mouthful of cherries
running down her chin
she flings on the swing
