Momiji 紅葉

Lone red maple leaf
In sea of bright green leaves.  Leaps
To earth:  切腹

Momiji 紅葉

Red maples dance:  I
Approach  slowly and listen
To the wind.  Music

For the maples as
I join in their dance.  My arms
Raised to them.  Their leaves

Shining red: flutter.
Wind stills.  I bow to these most
Perfect of partners.

Line of fire:  maples
Ignite the sky and burn the
Horizon.  Night falls.
