THE HUSBAND AND WIFE ROCKS OF FUTAMI — “Meoto Iwa” in Old Japa

~~~

If on your way
Where you lodge along the sea
The mist should rise,
Please know it is my breath
Sighed as I stand here waiting.

~~~

my attempt

On your journey
When you stay by the seaside
Be aware that my breath
Will be the surrounding mist
Exhaled as I long for you
