Tsurayuki [Ki no Tsurayuki (ca. 872–945)] //
With blossom-scent / the fragrance of these garments / takes on new depth / in every gust of wind that blows / beneath the shadow of the trees.
Travel poem / submitted with a 100-poem sequence / Lord Fujiwara Ietaka [1158–1237]
// Although no promise / kept me here, the night has passed — / Kiyomi Strand / where now the waves are left behind / by the brightening sky of dawn.
