Carpe Diem #1682 Troiku month (11) The Wind Of Fuji

the wind of Fuji
this ancient language
mystical exhalation

I’ve brought on my fan
a songbird’s joy
as soft as cherry blossom petals

a gift from Edo
like a clear running stream
carrying it within my skin

the wind of Fuji
I’ve brought on my fan
a gift from Edo
