In a White Dress

Towards the end of her life, Kiyoko became tinier. Here she is in a white dress 
when she gave a reading at Fort Mason for the Haiku Poets of Northern California. 
The reflected light off the ocean through the windows of the old fort is often
very beautiful there. Her quiet decline was very sad to witness.

Dreaming of sushi to eat
but my daughter says no--
winter sunshine

two hours of winter
