Poems about Japan

by Jane Mason Asia

Tokyo subway

Elderly woman
Shopping in translation -
Beautiful flower


Snowflakes on water
Hundreds of tiny fishes
Coming up for air

Kyoto sidewalk

Scrubbing with a brush
A woman washes the walk
Her store is open

Snow country

In the far distance
Ink on an overturned brush
Black birds in a tree



Blossom makes me smile
It makes even the suburbs
Look enviable
