Haiku Thoughts, May 2011 in Tokyo

Earthquake, tsunami,
Power plant. Earth, water, air struck!
Where are the tourists?
Tokyo haiku 1 (May 20 '11)

Upscale hotels hurt;
Fukushima farmers too.
Cash is NOT king.
Tokyo haiku 2 (May 20 '11)

"Cash donations here"
Tokyo folks seek better ways
To help those up north
Tokyo haiku 3 (May 20 '11)

Springtime is ending.
Signs advise "Save Energy"
A long, hot summer!
Tokyo haiku 4 (May 20 '11)
Energy Reduction in Japan; An Inconvenient Necessity

Buddhist temple rites
Cemetery gathering
Honor both parents
Tokyo haiku 5 (May 21 '11)

Gong sounds, priest intones
Evokes Gregorian chant
A low tonal scale
Tokyo haiku  6 (May 23 '11)

Wedding happiness
Lovely bride and handsome groom
Best friends forever!
Tokyo haiku 7 (May 23 '11)

Misty Takao
My private Nature Trail 4
The path not taken
Tokyo haiku 8 (May 23 '11)

Tsunami homeless
Land, clothes, house, cash, food, job lost
Leave free shelter? How?
Tokyo haiku 9 (May 26 '11)

Kodo tradition:
Precision, stamina, strength;
Raw, refined, sublime.
Tokyo haiku 10 (May 26 '11)

We need to remind ourselves sometimes that destructive forces of the recent past often become the foundation of new growth. See Kuninori's photo of a different perspective of Mt. Fuji at Suruga Bay.
