From a trembling dream
you awoke with grasping hands;
how softly you cried.

I’ll soak up your love
but if you want anything back,
you’ll have to squeeze me.

Four Canberra senryu

I.
This pool of refuse,
a man-made monstrosity:
Lake Burley Griffin.

II.
Spanish tourists ride
under four-wheeled canopies –
“Hello! How are you?”

III.
A jogger pounds by,
a heart attack in motion –
makes no sense to me.

IV.
The Carillon chimes
behind the drooping willows:
one ugly doorbell.
