Judy Green ~ Butterfly

Judy Green ~ Butterfly

None is travelling
Here along this way but I,
This autumn evening.

The first day of the year:
thoughts come – and there is loneliness;
the autumn dusk is here.

Won’t you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree.

Lady butterfly
perfumes her wings by floating
Over the orchid

Silent the old town . . .
the scent of flowers floating . . .
And evening bell

—Basho

If you ever get a chance to see my friend Shoji Kameda’s (in the green vest) group, On Ensemble, please go. They are wonderful!
