The broad-brimmed hat

This picture of Kiyoko Tokutomi in sun hat and sunglasses 
was taken on one of our ginko, or haiku walks, in early summer. 
We always tried to choose a special place to see at its special time of year, 
and planned to spend a good portion of the day there, 
perhaps with a picnic lunch.

Not even the sky
is wide enough--scale clouds
burgeoning outward

Kiyoko Tokutomi
from Kiyoko's Sky; the haiku of Kiyoko Tokutomi,
 Brooks Books, 2002.
