from the Icebox inbox – 29

inchworm ~
little by little
the lengthening day

…… (Michael Henry Lee)

Too soft their voices
for me to hear the words
of next-door neighbors
this night of the Full Worm Moon

…… (Jane Wieman)

At the bend
A hundred fresh trees –
Spring

…… (Kanchan Chatterjee)

Across my heart
the night worm scribbles hours
ink pours from the moon

…… (Jane Fenton Keane)

  1. Admittedly, they have no real connection with each other, … but is this the Year of the Worm?

  2. Hisashi Miyazaki Says:

    Probably because so many worms have gathered in this box, I feel that I have seen fewer worms than usual in the dry rainy season (kara-tsuyu 空梅雨) we are having this year!

  3. Michael’s is a revelation to me: the mutural correspondence between the ‘little-by-little’ movement of inchworm and the ‘lengthening’ of the day.
