far from the tree. Here, the only child, Yukiko Tokotomi, of the founders
of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society, gives her presentation at the Asilomar Book Party
for Autumn Loneliness; the letters of Kiyoshi and Kiyoko Tokutomi, 2009.
The dude leaning on a Volkswagen in the wall photo is the young Kiyoshi, back from Japan!
Behind her left to right: Mrs. Tokutomi's sister and Tei Matsushita, who translated the letters.
Last night when we were fooling around on Facebook,
Yukiko made a comment that reminded me of haiku.
I told her why not add a kigo and I would post it here:And she did!
The "past" is an interesting window to look through...softly falling leaves
