January 2017 Open Reading Review

First meeting of this bird year, 2017. Thoughts on nature and inner-reflections.
Sharing of our writings and sharing of suggestions. Afterwards, we made plans
for this coming year. Looking forward to our continuing progress.


Albert Sussler ( USA )

~ “Rock Garden” ~
No Rock in the center, for nothing is in the center, balance is always changing.

~ “Four Haiku” ~
Like dawn and dusk glow
most telling illumination
Character of child, of aged.

~ “Rokujijukugo” ~
Focus too far, miss the surroundings

~ “Yojijukugo” ~
Freedom walks with compass

Masako Izumi ( Japan )

~ “A Gold Fish” ~
Chased by the children’s hands, the happy dreams were fleeing
from place to place in the water.

~ “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” ~  by William B. Yeats
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore

Hiroko Kajita ( Japan )

~ “Coincidence of number 12” ~
No one knew that the 12th would be the last day we saw him.

Ayumi Shibata ( Japan ) -Debut-

~ “Door” ~
It’s me inside of me.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

~ “A Morning Scene” ~
You pass though one of those things which eats them here and sticks them out there.

~ “Walk” ~
I couldn’t excuse the clouds hanging low over me.

~ “To my First Born” ~  by Hiroshi Yoshino (Translation by Kenji Inoue)
Like Vultures / They arrived / Zipping their black briefcases / Open and shut

S. Elliot ( USA )

~ “Entry One” ~
Science equals truth, truth equals beauty.

~ “Water” ~
Hydrogen – Oxide on earth essential to life ubiquitous to liquid state called water.
