Invisible Deer Inhale

Haruo Hisamoto

crunch of gravel

as a vehicle gently

rolls in

invisible deer inhale

and slowly lift their heads

  1. Though I often choose the woodblock print after I write a poem, in the case of the young girl in love, I selected the woodblock print first and wrote the poem afterwards. I did that for the woman who was waiting for the moon also.

    As far as the deer, I have a friend who has a big garden and the deer sleep under a cedar tree there almost every night. I saw them recently, and then I searched for a painting or woodblock print and found this wonderful painting.

    Thanks, Rosemary. You are very preceptive to realize I must have seen the deer. I tried to write it from their perspective.
