Modern English Tanka


replacing each other
seasons come and go
under the moon
every step I have taken
leads to your door

just before dawn
nine rosebuds
rest on the pillow
ready to bloom
for each shared year

weeping willow
we've passed every day
is sawed down
I can tell by your face
that you miss it
