Japanese poetry at night



Poetry bundle, photography by Andrea Connolly (reading Japanese waka poems)



A fledgling

hops from leaf to leaf

soaks night dew


My hair like

Emperor Tenji I dream

of mount Fuji


A flurry

of cherry blossoms

blossom in me


(One Hundred poets, One Poem Each/ Hyakunin Isshu)
