Tributes To My Sister

This is the big Mugumo referred to in these tributes
June dusk--
I fight back tears under
a mugumo

concrete seat--
a dry mugumo leaf keeps
me company

under the mugumo
I watch a June dusk brighten
office fluorescents

campus lawn--
I watch rusty keys dangle
on mugumo

June dusk--
I scribble 'Naomi'
on the concrete seat

departed sister--
dry mugumo leaves gloom
the lawn

dusk walk--
showers wash my sorrows 
down Moi Avenue

funeral speech--
he calls his stubborn sister
back to the shelter

funeral speech--
I put down my sorrows
in a haiku
