         ah autumn blast
                (Mandala)

           it was an interlude
           of the prolonged sandstorms
                (D.Horse)

         flag-maker's working in
         the moonlit atelier

           run, little mermaid, run
           on your brand new feet

           'twas only yesterday
                (d.horse)


                       mandala

         suddenly the game is over
         only the floral scent
         left behind
                (anne)

           on a thrown die
           a butterfly sits

         dragging tins and cans
         marriage of convenience

           linger in the silence

         never forget
         what your mother taught you
                (tina)

           lullaby goes on like this:
           pain! pain! fly away!
                (anne)

         flower to flower
         a butterfly flits around
         for life or for love
                (d.horse)

           may peace prevail on the earth

            autumn is here
                    (fujiwara toshiyuki/d. horse)

                evening is a bit chill
                   (mandala)

            a moon
            swaying on the water
            in a tin tub
                    (tina)

                a pumpkin coach last midnight?
                   (d. horse)

            sunset to sunrise
            curfew is imposed
            in the capital
                   (mandala)

                the isle is in haze
                a distant silhouette
                   (mandala)

            I believe
            fairies of that blooming hamlet
            are all in a doze
                   (tina)

                my pa and mom met
                   (d.horse)

            her smile is a blur
            in the warmth of the night
            ah Diana

                   (mandala)

            somehow
            my nose itches --
            gleamy weather
                   (tina)

            couch potatoes
            beside the fireplace
            unmoving

                the stockbroker is wavering
                   (tina)

            onto chilly streets
            people dissipate for weekends
            crescent moon hanging in the sky
                   (d.horse)

                they harvest strange fruits

                   (d.horse)

                in a snowstorm
                nomads are starving

            his wife forgot
            to put chopsticks
            in his lunch box
                   (tina)

                a rustle at the front door
                spring air wafted in
                   (d.horse)

            oh Florence
            Flora springs out of
