Days and nights
Gone were
Those days
Born were
Those nights
Who are
They now
Where are
They now
Death is
For body

Time is tide

Time is tide

Time is tide
Seek and hide

Season and Reason

Season and Reason
Each year has its
Own age
Each age has its
Own feeling
Each feeling has its
Own action
Each action has its
Own reason
Youth is reason
Age is season

Swelling city
Swallowing huts

Family bond
Fragrant jasmine
Peaceful idlies

Hundred of treats
