June 27, 2002: Making Haiku in Kagurame pond
We have an intermittent clear day in the rainy season today.
We visited Kagurame pond for composing Haiku, twice a month, by sharing the seat of a jumbo taxi.


Taking pictures each other in the iris garden
The iris garden is in its height today, competing the beauty each other.
The green air was fresh and dry; we could enjoy the chorus of many birds such as bush warbler, little cuckoos, and cuckoos.

Baby ducks come out and hide in the reed of the pond
The gardeners carefully maintain the garden to keep it beautiful in the best condition.

The died pedals are quietly removed by the gardeners
We all enjoyed the iris today.
The color of the flower varies to a wide range.
The mass of the flower is too big to hold with the palms
