haiku and senryu by Stephen Page on the zen space

haiku and senryu by Stephen Page on the zen space

Stephen Page

in a vacant lot
among broken red bricks
shaded sparrows sing


mocking bird calls
from a thick evergreen bush –
a sparrow steers clear


the car almost empty –
the boy slouched across from me
spitting out rap tunes


sunday evening –
so long
between trains


sitting on a train
wishing I could smoke –
the horrendous smells
