Haiku's written on peaceful Sunday afternoon

(The following haiku's reflect neighborhood life here in Hengyang.)

When outside comes in

peaceful, vivid voices move

like flowing curtains.

Greedy fireworks explode

in the dark outside my window

I awake, alone.

Smoke from the East & West

hazing up the crowded streets

nothing is untouched.

He weevils to and fro

his arms and legs smothered

The little emperor rules.

Grandma’s with no teeth

smile chasing after chickens

Grandpas look away.

Scouring through rubbish

finding treasure or at least

the next meal.
