Today I am sharing a tanka
written by the Heian-era
Japanese female poet Izumi Shikibu
around the year 1000.
Stay well beautiful readers.
Although the wind
blows terribly here,
also leaks between the roof planks
of this ruined house.

cold metal rises
from rough barren ground
stark on the field
yet it loops to form a heart,
links our lives to something warm

I look ahead
at a fork in the road
a choice I must make
leads away from you
