cathedral wedding
slenderness of bride and groom
beside the pillars

mid-summer drought
already the weeping willow
sheds its leaves
first day of winter
the tinge of new grass
on bald hills

(famous reporter # 28: Dec 2003)

weeping cherry
an old woman
touches a blossom
a river of umbrellas
runs along the path

(famous reporter # 38: Dec 2008)
