when I looked back,
the man who passed
was lost in the mist                           © Masaoka Shiki

she emerges
from the fog
a mere shadow

~

just a flashy star
sizzling one bright moment
then obscurity

~

suddenly
from the empty fields
birds arise

~

in the morning frost
doe emerges from the mist
startling the birds

~

the lighthouse beckons
to the ship lost in the fog
spilling her secrets
