high coup hai ku gathered 5/21

our bejeweled

our bejeweled fingers quite often don't even point to the moon
an 'aha' moment or a woodpecker at a pine for bugs
unnatural on one hand the season word rules for unruly nature
might 'anything goes' reflect that critic's fear of art
just to get published the beginning poet lets go of of of something
i've got it all figured out most of it anyway
shorter than some longer than others a 'one-breath' haiku
what's lost in the poem the translation
