blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roof planks
of this ruined house.

Black hair and red cheeks: for how long?
One moment, and the silver threads run through.
Open the blinds: the first apricot blossoms have opened–
Hurry! The spring days are now!
Thank you Josh, Chrissie, Jackie and everyone at The Daily Post!
Women in Praise of the Sacred
The sprouting grass waiting for spring,
and the grass that begins to wither, were once the same
wild grass of the moor.
Sooner or later
they surely meet with autumn
and end in the season of weariness.
