Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty

---Santōka

Tanka..the lament

she journeyed afar
and he lamented--listen to
the willows talk
they're wishing for
rosebuds for his lips

..Note: previously, poem
had a staza break after L3
and "listen to" started L3
..and, possibly,
"rosebuds" ended L4
..and it was entitled: The Lament

This is gorgeous. It feels like it needs some ethereal illustration to deepen the story that it suggests.
