"Under the Sakura Tree" now available on Scribd. com

My collection of Japanese poetry (waka) titled, "Under the Sakura Tree" is now available on Scribd. com.

Here is the link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/64022274/Under-the-Sakura-Tree

This collection includes haiku (5-7-5 syllables), choka (a long poem with stanzas of alternative 5-7 syllables each, and the last stanza ends in 5-7-7) and tanka (5-7-5-7-7). Subjects range from nature to tea and chocolate, from the thoughts of cats and musings on the night. Many of the poems are accompanied by original artwork.

Stop and by and take a look! Thanks!
