grieve a breeze

“Time Travel: Ancient Japanese Poetry” with Chèvre at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

 

Even a breeze may fail me

When I desire it.

Little I should grieve,

If only, sure of its coming,

I could await even a breeze.

waka by Princess Kagami (7th century)

 

extreme summer

wrung out from humidity

even breeze feels hot
