tourism ***** JAPANESE TOMB LANDCAPE


Narras in all breed
stand as receptionists
at the mouth of memorial gate
lichen-masked pines
strayed local guavas
near bridge across
artificial lagoon
heading to
hundred-steps penitencial ladder
approaching highest altitude
placid peak
for Lake Caliraya sightseeing
to wavy Sierra Madre foothills

I haven't seen this before
even in the eye of my
expectations
but oh!
I am dismayed
the red burning sun rushly hides
to rest

spectators are whistling now
in disgust and leaving
peace
for the final resting tomb
of Japanese

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
