Night of the full moon!

The weather in the north land

Is so uncertain.

None goes along this way but I,

This autumn eve.

weekly photo challenge: on the way

On and on I travel;

Though I fall and die, let it be

In fields of clover.

wet with tears

I cannot speak of

Yudono, but see how wet

My sleeve is with tears.
