The Narrow Road (15 B) – Tanka – December 26, 2015

country road

wandering alone
astonished by the love found
my life is complete
I’ll walk this narrow road
in peace from this day onwards

Carpe Diem #885 without you: Stone Mountain, at Yamanaka, from this day on

 

sweeping the garden
I want to leave in the temple
scattered willow leaves
