Troiku Challenge 2019: Day 20: The Snow of Yesterday


the snow of yesterday
that fell like cherry blossoms
is water once again

the snow of yesterday
embraced me in cold cocoon
you were beside me

that fell like cherry blossoms
the snowflakes like frozen gems
my heart was open

is water once again
memories flow from my eyes
as I think of you

~Gozan & Cie~

with the moon
night too disappears
into the ocean

with the moon
memories return to me
I try to catch them

night too disappears
burned away by light and heat
everything in flames

into the ocean
I sometimes wish I could stroll
and be washed away

~Jane & Cie~


Notes:
The Jisei is a Haiku written by a poet shortly before their passing from the world. The "sleigh" of the first Troiku is the Jisei of the poet Gozan, written shortly prior to his death in 1781 at the age of 71. The "sleigh" of the second Troiku was written by Jane Reichhold (1937 - 2016) shortly prior to her passing.
