COMPOSERS

composers 

nocturnal weavers
produce silky finespun sheet(s)
between midnight and twilight

katauta

throughout the night
nocturnal creatures observe
harmonious choir
producing a faint tune
weaving sheet(s) of secrecy

tanka

swollen charcoal clouds
dispenses dissonant notes
on silk sheets
green leaves dancing in the wind
produced by nightly workmen

tanka

FUNCTIONALITY

functionality

intricate web
fated to oblivion
carried off by bitter winds

and

luminous silk sheet
trembles against
gusting winds

haiku

and

ingenious designers
weave elaborate veil
that shifts softly
catchings fine tears
departed from heaven

tanka
