2 Poems by George Lai Yuan

Hiyaku Haiku: Japanese Memories

a trace of a scent
a tune of a melody
a glimpse of a scene

it teases your mind
tugs at your subconsciousness
and in an instant

bursts as from a dam
flooding senses unready
wakes aches forgotten

held for a second
now fading into a dream
beyond the sunland
