Graduation Day

Graduation day;
A baby mantis
Is perching on the top of my shoe

July 2003

[Sitting on the podium in my full gown and cap with the other faculty members; graduating students behind us and audience to the front. I cross my legs and suddenly find a very, very tiny praying mantis on the very top of my shoe, completely oblivious of the whole show.]

The Lake

   Frozen lake;
       The moving blue and white forms
  Reflect the sky

[ I took this picture with my phone in Faraya while I was walking.]
