Waka (2021/6/29)

⁂ I dream of death, and this world is the height of joy.

⁂  It's raining, but I don't have an umbrella, young blood.

⁂  Gently kissing a p***s raging with madness.

⁂  A tiger and a lion are afraid of a young boy who is beautiful.

⁂  If we can get along with the madness, we'll have no enemies.

⁂  Love overcomes death, and death is simply powerless against love.

⁂  Love is blind, dreams are dashed, and in sorrow, eyes are opened.


That woman is in the dunes.
There, everything is just following the law of the sand.
I can't fit into the sand for even five minutes.
That woman goes out to collect sand and never comes back.

About this poem

The Japanese poetic form is based on short poems. Haiku, Tanka and other Japanese poems have been loved for more than 1000 years. Short poems in English are also very beautiful and I admire them. English is the most wonderful language. I'm going to post a few short poems I've made as a greeting. It's just a little bit.
