Mixed Japanese Short Forms

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

up to hilltop casino
chinese gods line
the street side

(a popular casino
people pray to these gods hoping
to make a gain)

haiku three:

backside up
bad-mannered bee
at his food

tanka:

beneath the cold demeanor
his warmth sends
my heart blooming
the soil beneath the snow
that swells with life in spring
