women: in haiku and senryu

It's Women's Month! Here are haiku and senryu on women I have composed. You can read them, and my other compositions, in Along a Calm and Clear River.

ice and fish
n a bucket--
mother's reflection


two mothers
talk of wedding
over ricecakes


gray-haired woman
curled on a folding bed
... crescent moon


barbecue stand--
thin smoke veils a woman's face
her musing eyes


breakfast...
mother waters her plants
with a teapot


videoke night--
on the screen, a background
of bare breasts

Stopped by your site and enjoyed your haiku series themed on women, especially your mother/teapot poem.

mountain visit...
these days mother picks
only one wildflower
